Immigration And The Global Talent Search

Coming up on Spotlight, May 13 at 8:00 p.m.

It's the American dream: move to the United States, start your own business, build a successful life. But has the United States lost its edge in attracting the best and brightest entrepreneurs?

In this month's America Abroad, we'll learn about the significant role immigrants play in creating small and mid-sized businesses. We'll hear how the American visa process could be deterring potential entrepreneurs, particularly from math and engineering-focused places like India. And we'll learn what other countries are doing to attract foreign talent and help themselves out of the global recession.
