Leaving socialist societies
Sweden is facing similar problem with thousands of highly educated Swedes leaving the country each year, with the US and the UK being the most popular destination. Last year, Net emigration of Swedes was more than 5,000, a number likely to increase this year. The situation is likely similar in other highly welfare statist Western European countries. While both France and Sweden receives a lot of immigrants from Africa and the Middle East, they are usually not as productive (indeed a substantial portion of them live exclusively off the welfare state)as the emigrants.
