Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The obvious model for this is the USA. Boom states become bust states, waves of "internal" migration are common and ongoing.

Language and culture are fast losing their strength as barriers, especially as the target population are young and well-educated.

Is this/will this become a significant factor in re-balancing the Eurozone's internal economic tensions? The backwater-ization of the regions providing the emigrants is a danger.
