Just as trade, finance, information, and technologies are moving rapidly across borders, so too are labor markets and transnational migrant communities, with migrants sending large quantities of money and knowledge back to their native countries as philanthropy, remittances, and commercial investments. Merz examines the positive--and sometimes negative--impacts of this transactional engagement in studies of Africa, Asia, Central America, and the Caribbean.
