What this means is that while from an individual origin country perspective, emigrants have gone to an increasingly diverse array of destinations, on a global level, these destination countries increasingly overlap; that is, they represent a decreasing pool of major immigration countries on which global migration has increasingly focused. Remittances help to counterbalance some of these effects. In any event, it no longer makes sense to think of national teams of labor and capital in the globalized economy.

A Loss Of Cultures With globalization, eventually, every country would run and function the same way. While immigrant populations have become more diverse in new destination countries in Europe, this is not always the case elsewhere, such as the Americas and the Pacific, where immigrant populations have become less European but not necessarily more diverse in terms of diversity of origin countries. Looking at the reverse picture, we also find large variations across and within world regions for immigrant rates see Figure and Table S2. Some Latin American countries have seen decreasing diversity coinciding with their transformation from immigration to emigration countries. There, however, seem to be other, more fundamental reasons why technological and economic globalization has not coincided with an acceleration of migration.
For instance, the collapse of Communism has contributed to the diversification of immigrant populations in Western Europe. Furthermore, weighting of components subindices is a crucial decision in the compilation of any index. Can we use absolute numbers, or is this deceiving and should we rather express this in relative numbers such as the shares of the total population? In other words, a shrinking number of prime migration destinations attract migrants from an increasingly diverse array of origin countries. In the 21st century, how might we expect our lives and societies to be affected by changes in immigration? According to a study published this week in Science, new discoveries over the last decade have shown that modern humans likely originated from several migrations from Africa that began as early as 120,000 years ago.

These ties may have eroded over time, possibly coinciding with a diversification of migration.
But if support ratios fall to projected levels, either tax rates will need to skyrocket or benefits will have to be drastically cut.
