Questioning the given that remittances (money sent home by immigrants) inevitably decline, Grieco (Migration Policy Institute, Washington, DC) applies migrant network theory and theories of social capital and the strength of social ties to examine remittance behavior of Micronesian immigrants in Guam and Hawaii. The analysis of data is designed to shed light on the influence of time, family reunification migration, network participation, and influence of non-migrants on remittance behavior. The data is derived from the Census of Micronesian Migrants to Guam and Hawaii. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
