Rural-urban migration and surplus labour: reservations on Bhatia.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The paper comments on K.B. Bhatia, 'Rural-urban migration and surplus labour' Oxford Economic Papers, 31, 1980. It hypothesizes that under specified conditions, when the minimum urban wage increases, rural-to-urban migration will exceed the level predicted in Todaro's model This criticism argues that when the employers' demand response is properly taken into account, the conditions proposed by Bhatia are insufficient to produce the claimed results. -from WAERSA
