David Heenan talked about his book Flight Capital: The Alarming Exodus of America’s Best and Brightest, published by Davies-Black Publishing. In his book David Heenan talks about the increasing emigration of knowledge-based workers from the U.S. to their native countries, a process he refers to as the “reverse brain-drain.” Mr. Heenan profiles four individuals - from Ireland, Iceland, Singapore, and Mexico - who immigrated to the U.S. to pursue a better life (or whose parents immigrated to the U.S. for this purpose) and then decided to move back. He talked about the national security and economic implications of this trend and explained why he thinks it is happening. Following his presentation, Mr. Heenan responded to questions and comments from members of the audience. close
