The International Mobility of Talent

Anthony P. D'Costa

Oxford University Press

This chapter charts the complex dynamics of the movement of technical talent in the world economy and assesses broadly the impact of such mobility on both sending and receiving countries. Based on secondary data and primary information from the Indian and Japanese information technology industries, the study presents a global view of the movement of talent and its development and policy implications. By synthesizing disparate data and the multifaceted processes and outcomes of international mobility, the chapter examines some of the distributional issues of gains and losses in both sending and receiving countries.
