Reply to the Critics: The Difference between Talent Going aboard, Staying Aboard, and the Brain Drain

The article refers to UNU-WIDER research from 2008 on the global flow of talent: 'It is traditionally believed that the brain drain from developing countries only benefits  the developed countries where skilled labour ends up. But if there is effective control and wise management, developing countries could also obtain benefit from the flow'. 

This article is about Chinese overseas talent and the brain drain in China.
