 en Brain Drain from African States: Empirical Evidence and Policy Implications
Fadayomi, T.O.


"As yet, the African governments have had little concern about brain drain. Within the next decade, however, the high-level manpower situation is likely to undergo substantial change. First, the supply of new talents is likely to increase more rapidly than expected because of the very high rate of growth of enrollments in the universities. Secondly, the net annual increase in effective demand for high level African manpower will decrease sharply as soon as most of the expatriates are replaced. As a consequence of increasing supply and decreasing effective demand, African countries may find themselves with a staggering surplus of educated people seeking high-level and high-paying jobs, which will not be available." --Frederick H. Harbison
