Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
and just for your info: France attracts educated foreigners from rich countries, whereas the UK actually exports them

Actually, unless I am reading this chart wrong, as of circa 2000, France exported more "tertiary-level graduates" to OECD countries than it imports from them: 4.40% emigrated vs. 4.20% immigrated.

(Having said that, the U.K. imports 6.50% and exports 14.90%.)

Luxembourg, Norway, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland are the only European countries that import more graduates from OECD countries than export to them.

Truth unfolds in time through a communal process.
