The Brain Drain is expected to get worse not better despite government efforts to originally say there wasn’t a brain drain and then to campaign to arrest it.
Its own ministry says the "brain drain" is likely to worsen as New Zealand’s "smart, healthy and skilled" workers are increasingly snapped up overseas.
Increased globalisation and ageing populations across OECD nations mean New Zealand’s ability to attract and retain skilled people will be a "significant issue" in coming years, briefing papers to new Minister of Social Development David Two-Fathers say.
The new minister not knowing anything spouts the party line;
New Zealand’s "green, outdoors-orientated, relaxed lifestyle" and low risk of terrorism were among the country’s assets.
"We offer stability, have values that resonate like social justice, and are renowned for low levels of corruption," he said.
"These social values may well become levers we as a country can use more strongly as we seek to attract the return of skilled New Zealanders or skilled foreigners to meet demand here."
He said young New Zealanders went overseas to see the world, not only to work for more money.
He added that the Government’s policy of interest-free student loans would be a major lure for young New Zealanders to return home.
What a complete load of crap. Their students loan policy will not attract even one student back and WTF is "Social Justice". I’ll tell you what it is, it is left wing mumbo-jumbo spouted by chardonnay socialists like Jordan Carter.
