This chapter investigates the politico-economic determination of the welfare state generosity, along with the volume and skill composition of migration. The investigation examines the restricted- and free-migration policies. The native population of a host country selects the volume and skill composition of migration under the politico-economic process, along with the level of generosity of the welfare state. The characterization of the politico-economic equilibrium is demonstrated through numerical simulations under the investigation. The chapter considers another case where the volume and skill composition of migration are determined by the native population of the host country. It also studies the impact of changes in the productivity factor and the skill composition of the native population on the politico-economic equilibrium policy of the host country.

Keywords:   skill composition, welfare state, numerical simulations
