Household consumption | Economic theory | World Bank | Financial transactions | International development | Immigrant remittances | Developing countries | Fees | Symposium: Emigration | Human migration | Financial investments | RESPONSES | COUNTRIES | This article is about the economics of migrant remittances sent to developing countries. I review the overall magnitude of remittances and what current research reveals about the motivations for migrant remittances and what effects they have. I discuss field experimental evidence on migrant desires for control over the uses of their remittances. I highlight some key distinctive characteristics of remittances-such as their high frequency and relatively small individual magnitudes-as well as recent experimental evidence on the effect of reductions in remittance transaction fees, and outline a research agenda on the microeconomics of remittance decision making. Finally, I discuss what the future holds for remittances, considering aggregate trends but also approaches likely to be taken by international development agencies, national governments, the private sector, and academic economists | INCOME | CREDIT MARKET | SAVINGS | INSURANCE | RISK | ECONOMICS | INTERNATIONAL MIGRATION | CONSUMPTION | INVESTMENTS | Economic aspects | Emigration and immigration | Economic research | Studies | Migrant workers | Remittances | Developing countries--LDCs
