The study surveyed 1,224 foreign national students and recent grads of U.S. institutions of higher learning. Very few foreign students said they’d like to stay in the United States
permanently: Only 6% of Indian, 10% of Chinese and 15% of Europeans. The impact will be felt most in technology and entrepreneurial fields where immigrants have historically had a disproportionately greater impact, such as the founders of firms like Google, Intel, eBay and Yahoo.
Perhaps even more disheartening is that fact that only 7% of Chinese students, 9% of European students and 25% of Indian
students stated they believe the best days of the U.S. economy lie
ahead; 74% of Chinese students and 86% of Indian students feel their home countries hold better economic futures than the U.S.
