    Wowie zowie. So, Ireland actually gets more migrant professionals than it loses to emigration. In the Irish context, the brain drain is a myth therefore? This must surely be an oversimplification.

    Especially if you look exclusively at certain professions, e.g. speech and language therapy.

      Look at the period, “Since 2003” a far more accurate graph to represent the brain drain would be say from 2008

    So Ireland marginally attracted more brains than it lost.

    Unfortunately, there isn’t a mechanism for exporting idiots yet…

    But if one did exist we could start with Dail Eireann, and export our idiots from there to… Russia – in which case the IQ of both countries would increase….

      unfortunately for both ourselves and the brains we gain, we employ them making sandwiches and serving coffee, taking hotel bookings etc.
