Abstract

We analyze under which conditions temporary migration of unskilled and skilled workers increases human capital accumulation in the host country. We also show that the negative welfare effect of lower unskilled wages may be counterbalanced by deeper human capital formation.

Keywords: Temporary Migration, Human Capital Formation
