Economic Migrants and International Aid

According to a Swedish official on Talking Points (a BBC program) just now, more money is sent home every year by individual economic migrants than is sent via goverment-based international aid. Fascinating program, with people calling in from Bangalore, Boston, Hong Kong, Antwerp, and London debating the effects and merits of regulating economic migration. Some alternatively heart-warming and heart-breaking stories.
