The central place of migrations in the reproduction of advanced societies

Abstract

International migration occupies a central place in the reproduction of advanced societies. As a demographic component, they contribute to cover the population gaps left by ageing and declining birth rates, and thus, support the demographic reproduction of the population. On the other hand, as a labor force contribute to cover deficits labor and sustaining capital accumulation and reproduction of the economy. As workers, they preferentially insert themselves into tasks of the daily reproduction of the middle and upper classes, contributing to sustain their lifestyles and patterns of consumption in a globalized world.
