Some occasionally observe that the overt poverty, crowding, unemployment and sporadic squalor of Third World cities should act as deterrents to migrants but, of course, this argument ignores the massive unemployment and poverty which are to be found in the rural areas of so many developing nations (Gilbert and Gugler, 1992; Potter, 1985, 1992b).
