In a special February centenary edition, the American Economic Review selected Todaro's article "Migration, Unemployment and Development: A 2-Sector Analysis" (with J. Harriss) as one of the twenty most important articles published by that journal during the first hundred years of its existence. Klaus Desmet, J. Vernon Henderson, in Handbook of Regional and Urban Economics, Abstract. This chapter describes how the spatial distribution of economic activity changes as economies develop and grow. We start with the relation between development and rural–urban migration.
"A theoretical model of rural-urban migration has been developed with special reference to the informal sector. The wage rate and employment in the informal sector are determined endogenously. The paper shows the simultaneous existence of open unemployment and informal sector in the urban area in migration equilibrium. Todaro, M.P.

Migration. The Basic Model The basic model which we shall employ can be described as a two-sector internal trade model with unemployment. The two sectors are the permanent urban and the rural. For analytical purposes we shall distinguish between sectors from the point of view of production and income.
The urban sector specializes in the. The basic model is a 2-sector internal trade model with unemployment the 2 sectors being the permanent urban sector which specializes in production of manufactured goods and the rural which either uses all available labor to produce agricultural goods or exports part of the labor to the urban by: The Harris–Todaro model, named after John R.
Harris and Michael Todaro, is an economic model developed in and used in development economics and welfare economics to explain some of the issues concerning rural-urban migration. The dual-sector model is a model in development economics.
It is commonly known as the Lewis model after its inventor W. Arthur Lewis. It explains the growth of a developing economy in terms of a labour transition between two sectors, the capitalist sector and the subsistence sector.
Indeed, especially in the developing countries, despite positive marginal products in agriculture and high urban unemployment, migration flows from country to city are increasing. The Harris and Todaro model () analyzes this phenomenon. The world can be seen as a two trade sectors: the permanent urban and the rural.
Throughout mnany less developed economies of the world, especially those of tropical Africa, a curious economic phenomenon is presently taking place. Despite the existence of positive marginal products in agriculture and significant levels of urban unemployment, rural-urban labor migration not only continues to exist, but indeed, appears to be accelerating.
Conventional economic models. The essence of the development process in such an economy is “the transfer of labour resources from the agricultural sector, where they add nothing to production, to the more modern industrial sector, where they create a surplus that may be used for further growth and development.”.
In Lewis model the transformation process or the process of structural change starts by an. Two-sector general equilibrium models are built to investigate how the quality of rural property rights influences rural-urban migration and national welfare in developing countries.
The model presented is derived from Migration, Unemployment and Development: A Two Sector Analysisoriginal article by John R. Harris and Michael P. Todaro ()2 and W.M. orden’s book mentioned above. The Lewis model is a model of STRUCTURAL CHANGE since it outlines the development from a traditional economy to an industrialized one.
Evaluation: China provides a good example: official Chinese statistics place the number of internal migrants over the past 20 years at over 10% of the bn population. 45% were aged and two-thirds were male.
Until recently, research on rural—urban migration in less developed countries has been largely dominated by the work of geographers, demographers and sociologists. For the most part, economists have preferred to ignore migration while operating within the confines of their traditional ‘two-sector’ models.

Urban growth is also referred to as the expansion of a metropolitan or suburban area into the surrounding environment. It can be considered as an indicator of the state of a country’s economic condition as the effect of urban growth directly impacts the country’s.

Harris-Todaro Model. BIBLIOGRAPHY. In the s the government of newly independent Kenya faced a difficult situation: Unemployment in Nairobi and other major cities was high and apparently rising. To cope with this problem, Tripartite Agreements were reached in which private-sector and public-sector employers agreed to increase employment in exchange for unions.
Thus, the Todaro model of rural-urban migration states: "Despite mass unemployment in cities people are migrating from villages to towns and cities". Assumptions of the Model: (i) The migration is assumed to be an economic phenomenon. In the model of Harris and Todaro (), a fixed urban wage leads to urban unemployment, and migration takes place unless expected utilities are equalized across the rural and urban sectors.
