Mobilising resiliency in times of economic hardship: Emerging themes in migrant worker remittance payments

By Kevin C. Garlan

Abstract

This paper analyses the nexus of the global financial crisis and the remittance markets of Mexico and India, along with introducing new and emerging payment technologies that will help facilitate the growth of remittances worldwide. Overall resiliency is found in most markets but some are impacted differently by economic hardship. With that we also explore the area of emerging payment methods and how they can help nations weather this economic strife. Mobile payments are highlighted as one of the priority areas for the future of transferring monetary funds, and we assess their ability to further facilitate global remittances.Remittances, Emerging Payments, Economic Crisis, Mexico, India
