"While we educate the best talent from the four corners of the world,
we have forgotten to keep the pick of the litter in the United States
to develop economic prosperity and instead have contributed to the purge
of technical talent back to where it came from by holding back work
visas and making residency nearly impossible. Following the graduates back to their homeland in China and India,
our banks, venture capitalists, capital and investments have contributed
to the globalization of our economic secret sauce. Not that we should
have been greedy and kept it all but we should have kept our fair share.
Instead, wrapped in fear of adding diversity in the form of culture and
people who are a bit different than the current template of the United
States we have closed the doors on a key ingredient." - Andrew 'Flip' Filipowski, Apr. 9, 2012.
