How global workforce development leverages opportunities for U.S.grads & Indian start-ups

Great to welcome in 2012 with an article in the Washington Post which speaks very directly to the inter-connections of  global workforce development with U.S. higher education!  See this piece at http://www.washingtonpost.com/rw/WashingtonPost/Content/Epaper/2012-01-01/Gx4.pdf.  Here we see the new draw of high-tech start-ups in India for U.S. grads willing to risk re-location coupled with the way in which U.S.-educated Indian professionals can utilize their ties to their alumni institution ( in this case the University of Pennsylvania) to secure the talent they need to grow their business.  I see this as a growing phenomenon in the case of both India and China in coming decades.  How telling to see Indian companies recruiting U.S. talent!  The old fear of brain-drain is gone.  The borderless economy opens doors in all directions.
