Abstract

Drawing on a sample of households in Bangladesh, we utilize the Generalized Propensity Score (GPS) method to investigate the impact of internal and international remittances on households’ net assets. The analysis suggests an inverted U-shaped relationship between the amount of internal remittances and the net assets of households. The effect of international remittances on net assets is similarly inverted U-shaped. The paper also indicates not only the source but also the size of remittances effects the utilization of remittances for asset accumulation.
