The Consequences of the First Brain Drain in U.S. History

View Slide Presentation

The U.S. has long benefited from immigration policies that entice the world's best and brightest to arrive, learn and stay in America. The consequent creative and productive strengths have contributed significantly to the nation's global leadership in countless fields, especially high-tech innovation. But now, for the first time in history, talent appears to be migrating the other way. Not only are foreign nationals returning home after getting a top-flight education in American graduate schools, but U.S. policy now actually encourages them to take their diplomas and leave. And why shouldn't they? China, India, Chile, Singapore and other nations actively recruit talent - including native U.S. talent - with attractive, career-advancing jobs and abundant research funding. How can America retain valuable human capital? Is high-skill immigration policy reform sufficient? How might it differ from low-skill immigration policy reform? Can more robust STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) curricula in U.S. schools take effect in time to compensate? Expect a lively debate among leaders from public, private and academic sectors with real stakes in this historic development.
