Abstract: This short paper explores the relationship between the rate of migration and the rate of economic growth. A review of the literature shows that there is no unanimity regarding the net effect of migration on economic growth.Sims' causality tests on the data for Irish migration and the growth of GNP per person over the period 1948-87 reveal no evidence of feedback from migration to growth. This finding has important implications for the interpretation of the post-war Irish economic experience.
