We'll Take Tim Harford
By Arnold Kling
Britain has now lost more than one in 10 of its most skilled citizens, while overall only Mexico has had more people emigrate.
…Britain’s exodus is far higher than any of the OECD’s other 29 members. Germany has lost only 860,000 highly-skilled workers, America 410,000 and France 370,000.
The OECD found that 27.3 per cent of those emigrating had health or education qualifications, 37.7 per cent had humanities or social science degrees and 28.5 per cent were scientists or engineers.
