The migration of knowledge workers: second-generation effects of India's brain drain
This book encourages strategies for turning the "brain drain" of educated professionals to India's advantage.
Binod Khadria argues that "first generation" losses of human resources from India can be compensated by making use of the finance, technology and manpower of Indian expatriates. In this way, the long-term average productivity of workers at home can be raised helping make good gross domestic product losses -- the "second generation" effects of brain drain.
The author also focuses on investments which can be made in health and education by expatriates.
