Postscript: Two-weeks ago, Reuters article sounding the same alarm on a global scale:

The traditional emigrant states are beginning to want their best minds back. The hunt for clever people is globalized: Universities, companies, even government bureaucracies seek them here and seek them there. The needs of the developed world and the greater needs of the developing world now conflict.
