Global migration and the world economy : two centuries of policy and performance by T. J Hatton( Book )

19 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A unlquely comprehensive look at 200 years of world mass migration by two economists who show how economie history can inform contemporary debate. World mass migration began in the early nineteenth century, when advances in transportation technology and industrial revolutions at home enabled increasing numbers of people to set off for other parts of the globe in search of a better life. Two centuries later, there is no distant Asian, African, or Latin American village that is not within reach of some high-wage OECD labour market. This book is the first comprehensive economic assessment of world mass migration taking a long-run historical perspective, including north-north, south-south, and south-north migrations. Timothy Hatton and Jeffrey Williamson, both economists and economic historians, consider two centuries of global mobility, assessing its impact on the migrants themselves as well as on the sending and receiving countries
The age of mass migration : causes and economic impact by T. J Hatton( Book )

20 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"About fifty-five million Europeans migrated to the New World between 1850 and 1914. This was an unprecedented migration that marked a profound shift in the distribution of global population and economic activity." "In The Age of Mass Migration: An Economic Analysis, Timothy J. Hatton and Jeffrey G. Williamson document this exodus and analyze its causes and effects. Their comprehensive study explores several key areas of inquiry that are still contested today, such as: Why did a nation's emigration rate typically rise with early industrialization? How did immigrants choose their destinations? Were international labor markets segmented? How successfully did migrants assimilate in host country labor markets? Did immigrants "rob" jobs from locals? Did emigration improve the lot of those left behind? The authors, both eminent economic historians, confront these questions in fresh ways. They consider existing debates in light of contemporary evidence and open new lines of inquiry. Above all, they argue that mass migration made an important contribution to the striking convergence of living standards between poor and rich countries in the West."--Jacket

Coping with city growth during the British Industrial Revolution by Jeffrey G Williamson( Book )

20 editions published between 1990 and 2002 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Coping with City Growth assesses Britain's handling of city growth during the First Industrial Revolution by combining the tools used by Third World analysts with the archival attention and eclectic style of the economic historian. What emerges is an exciting and provocative accounts that have long occupied problem development economists: urban unemployment, underemployment, and the alleged failure of city labour markets to absorb the flood of rural emigrants; the persistent influx of newcomers, which makes it difficult for municipal planners to improve the quality of social overhead; the crowding of migrants into densely packed urban slums with few, if any, social services; and rising density and city size which augment pollution while lowering the quality of the urban environment

Trade and poverty : when the Third World fell behind by Jeffrey G Williamson( Book )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today's wide economic gap between the postindustrial countries of the West and the poorer countries of the third world is not new. Fifty years ago, the world economic order -- two hundred years in the making -- was already characterized by a vast difference in per capita income between rich and poor countries and by the fact that poor countries exported commodities (agricultural or mineral products) while rich countries exported manufactured products. In Trade and Poverty, leading economic historian Jeffrey G. Williamson traces the great divergence between the third world and the West to this nexus of trade, commodity specialization, and poverty. Analyzing the role of specialization, de-industrialization, and commodity price volatility with econometrics and case studies of India, Ottoman Turkey, and Mexico, Williamson demonstrates why the close correlation between trade and poverty emerged

"In Globalization and the Poor Periphery before 1950 Jeffrey Williamson examines globalization through the lens of both the economist and the historian, analyzing its economic impact on industrially lagging poor countries in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
