Why do the best immigrant professionals move to America?

By Ram V. Iyer Immigrants are individuals who move to create a better life for themselves and their families. America welcomes immigrants from across the world. The inscription on the Statue of Liberty reads, ““Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” American ideology welcomes and encourages individuals to make a better life for themselves. Capitalism is predicated on individual success. When a large number of individuals are wildly successful (they are, in America more than in any other country in the world) it makes the collective society wealthier.

That attracts the ambitious who are confident in themselves, willing to become better and work hard to achieve their dreams. There are about 45 million first-generation immigrants in the United States today, about the population of Spain! If you as an immigrant have a choice of destinations, between a country that has opportunities and allows you to be whoever you want to be and make as much money as you can, and, another country that provides a certain income to provide a basic standard of living but does not provide unlimited upside, which country would you choose?
