While the United States of America was at one point (and largely still is) a magnet for foreigners in search of work, the statistics makes it clear that an opposite trend is quickly picking up steam. "There's a feeling among more entrepreneurial Americans that if you really want to get anything done, you have to get out of country and away from the depressing atmosphere," Bob Adams of America Wave tells Reuters. “There's a sense of lost direction, so more people are looking for locations that offer more hope about the future." Many of those leaving the US have job skills that would transfer quite well in the American market. Instead, however, they chose to bring those out of the States, attracted instead to opportunities elsewhere.
Banking giant Goldman Sachs announced earlier this year that in the wake of a recession, they would finally be creating 1,000 new positions, yet making them available only to workers in Singapore.

Well, I question anything from RT... but aside from that, here's hoping the article is accurate and the trend continues. As an American, I see this as being less rats, more cheese.

You know I was thinking about this the other day, and I concluded, if WW3 breaks out the USA is still probably going to be one of the safest places to be. No place will be safe now, but remember you have to be where there is still food and water available and civilized enough for help in medical care and such too.
It may be bad here but i think it is the safest bet.
