It represents an established pattern of population mobility, whether cross-country or are several benefits associated with this migration pattern, including gains in financial capital, human capital. This paper develops a simple analytical model with altruistically motivated remittances to analyze the determinants of remittances using household data from Ecuador. The model predicts that migrant remittance behavior and household migration size are non-monotonically correlated. The empirical work suggests that migrant remittances are a non-increasing function of the number of migrants within.
