US - reverse brain drain 2007-08-29
A report analyzing skilled migration to America has been published on behalf of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation (EMKF). It is the third in a series focusing on immigrants' contributions to the global competitiveness of the U.S. economy. Almost 9 in 10 foreigners cannot get a skilled employment-based visa due to quota limits. Entitled "Intellectual Property, the Immigration Backlog, and a Reverse Brain-Drain," findings from the report suggest that highly educated people from overseas with desperately needed skills will not be able to stay and contribute to the U.S. economy. Rather, they may find work in their home countries or immigrate to other nations instead.
