    The voice of concern for academic brain drain in Israel have been ringing for a while in Israel. But politicians don't care for the strategic future of Israel's defense, economy and world standing. Israel's only natural resource is a highly educated human capital, not oil and gold. There are many Israeli scientists working in American universities and private industry research labs. I fear that next few decades for Israel will be like the calamity that hit Russia--the huge waive of brain drain that no Russian industry has been able to recover from still. Gone are the days of Soviet era prestigious academic institutions, medical and defense research industries. Russians had reputation for aerospace industrial base and now they're struggling to fill gaps wit talented people to take over once the Soviet era personnel are retiring. Imagine the day that Israeli Rafael and IMI won't be bale to develop world leading next generation of missile defense or anti-tank technology? Or what will happen if Technion will lose its world standing because talented researchers flee overseas for better pay?
