Abstract

Documents a number of fallacies that have arisen in the research interpretation; rural-to-urban migration leads to smaller families; better education leads to migration to urban areas; migrants are to blame for inequality; migrants rationally join the unemployed ranks; migration raises food prices and revolutionary potential; policy must aim to keep people in rural areas.-R.Land
