Presents a dynamic model of human and non-human captial accumulation in the presence of emigration opportunities to see how the emigration of educated labour affects national income. Finds that a combination of an assumed low social productivity of educated labour and an increase in the education activity in response to increased migration opportunities explains the result that increased emigration will hurt non-migrants. However, when the productivity of human captial is relatively low, increased emigration of skilled labour may raise per capita consumption of those who remain in the sending country. -from AuthorEnglish
