Is this a sign of American brain drain to China?



June 04, 2015 – Comments (6) | RELATED TICKERS: ATVI , EA , CBS

You would think that the original Science & Technology Park located in the southern portion of San Francisco Bay Area (Silicon Valley) would be the first to have a Science & Technology headquarter's resembling the USS Enterprise. If not you would think some other Science & Technology Parks located in the United States or Canada would build one to maintain present skilled talent and attract more skilled talent from around the world who are Trekkies or Trekkers. 

I guess the sky's the limit nowadays with countries around the world having Science & Technology Parks and or constructing more and or expanding where Fuzhou , China 7.1 Economic and Technological Zones maybe ahead of all of them all with Star Trek theme(s).

Time will tell where the skilled talent pool will flow where at present Silicon Valley may be heavily weighted because in the 1990's United States offered talented foreigners with special skills H-1B visa and Science & Technology companies topped it up with above global average industry salary + benefits + perks (includes paid leisure time). If China can equal or beat the United States package(s) they may have a flood of skilled talent coming their way or if economic conditions in Science & Technology changes to bleak in United States than China may be the light at the end of the tunnel.

Maybe it won't be a massive drain because American Star Trek fans favorites: unofficial 

1) Vulcans

2) Klingons 

3) Borg 

4) Romulans

5) Andorians 

6) Ferengi

Seems like CBS may have plenty of business in selling licensing rights for tech companies around the globe to build their HQs replicating Star Trek starships if a worldwide American brain drain war escalates. This is true if the large population of the skilled technologists in the United States are hardcore Star Trek fans and other factors that want to make each indvidual or families to move.

starships of the Klingon Empire

I believe
trekkies or trekkers of asian descent choose to be Federation Human or Vulcan so I include list of starships of Federation, if China decides to up the ante in paying CBS for more Federation starship look alike headquarters in China.

If there will be a brain drain it will be the young single indviduals who are entering the field and trying to kick start their careers.

The ones that are valuable to American Sci-Tech Co. have put years as in decades or 10s of 1000s of hours to their present company. Many may have become managers, supervisors, and etc. has established homes and roots to where they now reside and I don't think they'll just suddenly abandon everything to start all over again.

Finally, yes there may be a brain drain for young individuals fresh out of school that may not find work in the United States might make a trek to China and that's about it.
