INFLUENCE OF REMITTANCES ON POVERTY IN DEVELOPING NATIONS
Toppe, Christopher M.
Remittances are believed to be a non-cyclical, relatively steady form of income transfer to households. The rate of growth of formal remittances in dollars has slowed since 2008, and in fact saw a small decrease in 2009. However, remittances began to increase again in 2010, proving resilience to the global recession through a much quicker recovery compared to the slow recovery of global economies. This study confirms that remittances are extremely resilient. The results of the analysis show that remittances continued to have a decreasing effect on poverty rates during the period of 1980 to 2011 and the effect was not statistically significantly changed by the crisis.
