What are they afraid of?

When you have an idea but are in a country that has no intellectual or property freedom, where do you go?

Beijing, Bangalore, Singapore and Shenzen are vying to become the world’s next Silicon Valley, yet the place to find cutting edge Asian-led innovation is the United States.

Dreams of rubbing shoulders with companies like Facebook, Google and Apple is luring high-tech Asian immigrants to the US at an astonishing rate.

Over 100,000 Asians move to California each year, more than any other ethnic group. Stereotypes abound about a “smart race” and start-up companies are seeking out Asian brain power.

In this age of digital transformation, 101 East asks if Asia is losing its best and brightest to the US.

They say this like it is a bad thing.

Of course, this story is at al Jazeera, so they probably think it is.

It’s one of the reasons why the left loves al Jazeera: They both hate capitalism.

    The slimball olgarch parasites want to capture every asset – and through the notoriously corrupt “court-system” in India and China then can.
    But the brain-drain has been happening since the mid 60’s when Indian Electrical Engineering graduates came to Stanford. Some returned but many did not, and it’s entirely because of the endemic culture of corruption that seizes creativity and rewards it with poverty.

    C’mon, NotClawswitz. Quit playing around and tell us how you really feel.
