Abstract

Emigration has had far-reaching, direct and indirect effects on major sectors of Portuguese economic activity for more than a century now. Though dating quite far back, emigration acquired new characteristics during the 19th century: it ceased to be predominantly a part of an imperial project and became the resultant of the distorting forces of a dependant capitalism. It thus plays a decisive role in liquidating an underemployed peasantry which the slowness of industrial growth does not permit absorbing. At the same time, it helps maintain a reserve of industrial manpower which it however keeps from assuming proportions incompatible with both the agricultural structure and the country's level of industrial development.
