Losses and gains to developing countries from the migration of educated workers: An overview of recent research, and new reflections

By Oded Stark and C. Simon Fan

Abstract

This paper synthesizes and extends recent research on 'The New Economics of the Brain Drain.' In a unified framework, the paper shows that while recently identified adverse repercussions of the brain drain exacerbate the long-recognized negative impact of the brain drain, longer-term consequences turn the brain drain into the harbinger of powerful gains. These gains have been studied already in recent research, or merit attention in future research
