Its definitely not easy, not easy at all. But its also not a sudden change... but the illegal workforce is also needed (or are americans willing to work the long hours in the field, with the sun and the heat?)

Also, there's an increment in people studying "soft" careers. That't not getting it done.

Well, you're entitled to your own opinion. Although, I agree there should be an immigration reform, its too easy for people that are willing to break the law, to enter the US... and to hard for people that want to work there.

Well, I would look at it the other way around... Native americans must have said the same thing about "americans".

Ariella,

Nice hearing from you once again!!

Here's some more news on the Trade wars front-EU is taking Argentina to the WTO.

from Bloomberg: EU will probably file challenge at WTO in coming weeks, spurred by separate dispute over YPF nationalization, person with knowledge of plan says. Other WTO members may join action, person says NOTE: Argentina has subjected growing number of imports to licensing regulations since 2008, drawing objections from EU, U.S., Japan, other WTO members

Things are starting to unravel super-fast for Global Trade (next up The US in an Election Year vs China) and with it-Global Growth and the Electronics Industry too bites the Dust...

Regards

Ashish.

Guys,

This just in.

India has complained to the WTO about the Visa Changes made in 2010 in the H-1B Program.

As the World Economy slides back into Recession these disputes are just going to get uglier and uglier,next up France which is moving to tighten Border Controls and reduce the effects of Global Trade on its Economy.

However, this most likely to backfire on the French themselves as the FT so attests.

The Europeans(other than Germany) have a serious problem of lack of competitiveness Globally.How they address that is going to be critical.

Wakjob, I think itís better to talk in terms of technology rather than citizens. For the growth of any country, technology advancements are important. So many countries are offering packages to companies for FDI and to attract the talent. I know many Americans, Russians, Germans, Indian etc are working for other countries with a unified mentality of technological growth. For most of them salary and other perks are secondary.

US government is offering different levels of Visas, inorder to attract talent pools. So I think it has to keep this option in open, let them come and work. Why should we worry about their spending nature, any way they have to spend a part of their earnings as tax and towards living cost.

'Cooperation' is just another word for communism and America has had quite enough of communism.
