On the other hand, all qualified students from poorer countries do not come or stay in USA. Some students naturally stay in their own countries. So, ultimately it do not damage the chances for development of poorer country. Poorer countries have a lot more major problems than this."

Supporting quotes from the Economist Debate Series

  • milci, commenter. Economist Debate Series, Education 2. December 14th, 2007 - "Nothing better can happen to the host and to the mother country of a student who goes to study to a foreign country. He will be an ambassador of his country while studying. If he goes home he will take his new experiences - good or bad - home and thus enrich his society. If he stays on to work in the host country he will enrich that countries society with his knowledge of his home country."
  • feerdaus, commenter. Economist Online Debate Series. December 11, 2007 06:41 - "For small countries such as Singapore, the ageing of its population and insufficent local talent has forced the authorities to 'import' talented students from around the world. Although the effects of draining talent from poorer countries can be negative, it is important to take note that the experience gained overseas can help the country the student came from in many ways."
