This video is primarily talking on the widely known topic of migration. 3 percent of the worlds population is living away from there place of birth. The push of migration from places include poverty, war, and environmental disasters. The migration pull in some places are because of  economic opportunity, and political freedom. Migration is increasing, and is thought of as a bad thing.(s.s.)

Aurora Rider's curator insight, October 7, 2014 8:59 PM

This video is great for going over the many different aspects that go along with migration. It talks about what migration is and the reasons why people migrate known as push and pull factors. It talks about the different types of migration such as asylum seakers and illegal immigration. It mentions the disadvantages and advantages of migration.

A great YouTube video- discussing the controversy of international migration among other things that fall into place of the disapproval of international migration. -UNIT 2

The hidden force in global economics: sending money home

The hidden force in global economics: sending money home | Mr Tony's Geography Stuff | Scoop.it
In 2013, international migrants sent $413 billion home to families and friends — three times more than the total of global foreign aid (about $135 billion). This money, known as remittances, makes a significant difference in the lives of those receiving it and plays a major role in the economies of many countries. Economist Dilip Ratha describes the promise of these “dollars wrapped with love” and analyzes how they are stifled by practical and regulatory obstacles.
Tony Hall's insight:

Shared with me by a colleague (thanks @edtechbailey) this morning. My Year 12 Geographers have started looking at Migration. Absolutely brilliant timing:)

Australia's population will tick past the 23 million mark on Tuesday night as the country continues to grow at the fastest rate in the developed world.
Tony Hall's insight:

This surprised me a bit. I know there is a lot of migration into Australia but to having the fastest growing population in the OECD is surprising. And worrying. Hmmm ...
