NOVA MELLE, Pilar. Effects of reduction social investments for keeping inclusive migratory policies. Trab. soc. [online]. 2012, n.19. ISSN 1514-6871.

A lot of countries are suffering the economical crisis in such a way that makes people think about issues never taken into consideration in times of prosperity. Shortly said, that problem is commonly expressed in an interrogative way: are emigrants an expense for host countries?. This essay is intended to prove that emigrant population, even in the current situation of general unemployment, keeps being an investment that makes unquestionable profits on different fields. To compare that assumption in relation to real data, it will be analyzed tools as Population Local Statistics, Spanish population pyramid, active population poll, public health system attending, expenses on education, as well as chapters of public budget devoted to social policies by the Spanish Government.

Keywords : Social investment; Inmigration; Population; Solidarity; Social exclusion; Expense; Unemployment.
