Abstract

We examine the interaction between policies of the host and source countries in the context of a model of skilled-worker migration. The host country aims to provide low-cost labor for its employers while also taking into consideration the fiscal burden of providing social services to immigrants. It optimizes by setting a time limit on the duration of a guest-worker's permit. The source country maximizes its net output by optimally choosing the amount of training provided to its citizens, some of whom may migrate. We solve for the Nash and cooperative-equilibrium values of the policy instruments.
