ABSTRACT
One of the most studied topics of each time in economics refers to the economic growth of a country and what causes it. There have been developed different theories throughout time and there have been questioned different possible relations between the growth rate and different variables. A highly debated causality refers to migration, remittances and growth, therefore, in this context, through this paper it is analysed the impact of remittances upon Romania's economy. The subject discussed is a very present-day issue that Romania is facing, so it is important to determine both the short-term and the long-term effects of the phenomenon. The paper builds mathematical models for testing the correlation between the growths of Romania (measured as GDP/capita).
