Argument: Studying abroad is an enriching experience
Supporting quotes from the Economist Online Debate Series
- Frances Cairncross. Proposition Opening Statement, Economist Online Debate Series. December 7th, 2007 - "Overseas study is a wonderfully enriching experience. After my own undergraduate years at Oxford University, I spent a year at Brown University, and recall my amazement at discovering people who did not share my childish view that Britain had single-handedly won the Second World War or that a state monopoly was the only possible way to finance health care. Of course, that intellectual enrichment is mutual: I suspect my American friends learned almost as much from my odd attitudes as I did from them."
