why brain drain may not be as bad as you think (alternate title: wrested research)

I recommend this posting from Michael Clemens at the Center for Global Development.  He explains why brain drain of medical professionals from Africa may not have the dire effects you expect and also how the media has twisted his research to their own ends.

[Thanks to Chris Blattman at one of my favorite blogs for the tip.]
