Abstract: Emigration is a social movement associated to the demand of better life conditions in different countries from those where one was born. In the specific case of skilled workers, this phenomenon is typically characterised in a negative way, due to the country’s loss of highly skilled resources, in whose education significant investment was done. While the impact of immigration on labour markets is widely studied and developed, the same is not true in what respects the impact of emigration at emigrant´s home countries. This article aims to analyse the effects of high skilled emigration from developed countries on wealth distribution at origin countries. For such purpose, an agent model was developed, and simulations are proposed to depict this phenomenon and discuss the inherent impacts.
