Brain circulation? British and Indian scientists in Boston, Massachusetts, USA
Harvey, William S.

This article argues that despite the growing emphasis on brain circulation, most British and Indian scientists working in Boston, Massachusetts, USA are still contributing to a brain drain in their home countries. I show that although the majority of respondents have regular, albeit different kinds of business contacts with their home countries, this has yet to translate into significant personal investments. Although most British and Indian scientists do not forge social contacts with professionals in their home countries, I suggest that such links could help induce investment in the UK and India in the future.
