    This paper analyzes the effects of land
    market restrictions on structural change from agriculture to
    non-farm in a rural economy. This paper develops a
    theoretical model that focuses on higher migration costs due
    to restrictions on alienability, and identifies the
    possibility of a reverse structural change where the share
    of nonagricultural employment declines. The reverse

    This paper analyzes the effects of land
    market restrictions on the rural labor market outcomes for
    women. The existing literature emphasizes two mechanisms

    outcomes: the collateral value of land, and (in) security of
    property rights. Analysis of this paper focuses on an
    alternative mechanism where land restrictions increase costs
    of migration out of villages. The testable prediction of

    Latin America and the Caribbean

    In 2013 the World Bank set itself two
    ambitious goals: to end extreme poverty within a generation
    and to boost the prosperity of the bottom 40 percent of the
    population worldwide. In Latin America, the significance of
    both goals cannot be overstated. Indigenous people account
