The Migration Link Between Urban and Rural Poor Communities: Looking at Giant Leaps and Small Steps

Poverty reduction is indispensable to achieving shared growth in the Philippines, where policies appear to have been wanting in terms of achieving this goal. One way by which the rural poor could improve their situation is by migrating to the urban sector. There appears to be evidence, however, that such a strategy is being thwarted, leading to immiserizing migration. I present three reasons by which such migration could be made possible. Explanation #1 uses income difference between origin and destination. Explanation #2 uses expected income differences, wherein the probability of getting the higher income in the destination becomes important. Explanation #3 uses what I call the Giant Leap And Small Step (GLASS) effect, wherein social networks appear to be important in explaining how migrants could be entrapped in an urban poor community. These explanations suggest that labor markets may not be functioning perfectly, so that pro-active government intervention becomes necessary.
