Abstract

The rise of globalization in recent decades has meant the increasing flow of capital, both financial and human. But does this increased human mobility have benefits for workers? In a new study, Susan Pozo investigates how international experience can benefit workers’ wages. By examining the U.S. population that was born in other countries to parents with U.S. citizenship, i.e. those who gained, but did not seek, international experience she finds that wages for this group are 5 percent higher for women and 2.5 percent higher for men.
