Abstract

Land rent escalation, which tends to limit rural-urban migration, provides an important additional force that may help determine city sizes in developing countries. The paper provides an alternative to this analysis by assuming that urban residents smooth their income as they cycle between formal and informal employment. This allows migration decisions to be based on the expected wage, as in the usual framework, in a model that includes a land market.
