This paper examines the effects of the oil-boom in the Gulf states in the framework of a Dutch disease model. The model indicates that labour immigration may offset the effects of Dutch disease in the Gulf states. However, this may effectively shift the symptoms of Dutch disease to labour-exporting countries. Consequently, the theoretical model shows that through labour migration, Dutch disease can be transmitted to sending countries.
