"Open up your markets" applies as much to the labour market as that for any other sort of good. So yeah, it's fair.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
You can work in India if you can find an employer willing to pay you the minimum wage requirements (25000 USD/yr pre-tax, perquisites not included).
Keep in mind that this sum is about right for someone with 5 to 10 years of experience, depending on domain and employer.
I would say "highly paid desk jobs".
Plus, the women from those countries who get admitted to us universities are already an elite minority. The US probably has the same percentage, but a smaller population base in college.
Combining characters (and the rest of the crap) pretty much never occur in real life.
Depends on the scripts and languages. It's fairly common in Indic scripts
Or they might even be able to integrate if the western countries would stop being racist and xenophobic.
That's very culture dependent. In Europe (and Asia), they are all Asians. In the US, Asian == mongoloid features.
http://science.slashdot.org/co... says 10000 lakes. 10000 in binary is 16 in decimal.
Or inherited it.
The problem with extreme economic inequality is that it leads to a feudal system.
Then you move out of such businesses? Or only tax humans?
They could just tax net worth/capital instead. Not capital gains, capital.
That's why you have more than one of those. And outsource to the telecom company.
(I haven't migrated to the US, but I am working outside India.)
What drives someone in India to come to the US, rather than improving their situation at home?
Money. Indian salaries are still very low as compared to US salaries, especially in Silicon Valley. Improving your situation at home means that you do the same job for a third of the money (at best), or less (usually about a 5th to a 10th).
Keep in mind that the wage gap in India is huge, unlike the US. This means that someone with 15 to 20 years of experience will have a roughly comparable salary, but for a fresher, the salary gap is 10x or more. (Rule of thumb, a job change gets you a 30% salary increase, you change jobs every two or three years. Not true for everyone, but often the case).
A few years ago, it was possible to move to the US for three years, live cheap, return to India and buy an apartment cash down. That's not possible now, it takes 6 years. If you are living in India, you might save up enough for the down-payment in 15 or 20 years, if you give up on most fun parts of life.
A hardware technician. You don't need that many of those.
Or you virtualise as much as possible, and then you need even fewer hands on site.
