This paper examines some economic aspects of the third form of demographic movement, namely migration. The paper is specific rather than general. It examines the particular migration, involving mainly workers, from Southern and Eastern Europe into the industrial nations of Western Europe, particularly through the decade of the 1960s to the present.
