Q: Why do most Chinese grad students that go abroad for grad school never come back?

Is the west the best?
How many of the best and brightest really stay here, or move back?
This would help explain the utter lack of innovation, and the prevelence of replication.

The government even has incentives for returning grad students who start, or take part in starting a business here.  A PhD can get up to 1million RMB and a MBA can get up to 200k RMB.  Strangely enough, that doesn't seem to be enough.

Perhaps it is because if the family had enough to send the person to a foreign grad school in the first place, the incentive money is just pocket change.

that's the plan, they know what this country is and where it's headed. also once you get a taste of freedom, after spending your life in this place, would you really want to come back?

I think more intellectual individuals tend to enjoy certain freedoms that aren't allowed here .

They get offered better jobs, the air is cleaner.... they can say and do what they pretty much want. Living in the west is an investment in their future. Not so much in China.

Are you sure they don't want to come back ? 

In China, most of our students that can go abroad have enough connections through their family to kill 5 government leaders and then just claime they all suicided.

There's being rich in the west. And then there's being rich in China.

They drink the local lemonade (none of that fake koolaid crap) and find that it's pretty tasty, especially the raspberry lemonade. They can escape their parents. They can be respected at work and have more free time afterwards. I'm not saying the Western world is paradise, but it has its perks, especially considering that chocolate is a decent price.

In South Africa Chinese people who work as hard as they would in China tend to make a lot of money.

I suspect that China being so competitive it would be harder for them to do so here.

My Chinese friends in SA also tell me that they would prefer if their children did not have to do their schooling in China (although most of them send their kids to their granny for a few years when they are small to master the language)

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
