U.S. Ethnic Scientists and Entrepreneurs
Kerr, William R.
Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland
Immigrants are exceptionally important for U.S. technology development, accounting for almost half of the country's Ph.D. workforce in science and engineering. Most notably, the contribution of Chinese and Indian scientists and entrepreneurs in U.S. high-technology sectors increased dramatically in the 1990s. These ethnic scientific communities in the United States also help transfer new technologies back to their home countries. (A list of recommended reading is included. Contains 2 figures.)
