Why  is that "gooc news" for you? Are you glad to see them go?

Just the ones that want to go
Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured. Mark Twain

Nowadays "the American dream" loses its meaning for those people who come from countries with developed or fast growing economies. So it is not a phenomenon at all that  Chinese alumni of US universities want to come back to their country after the graduation.

The "American Dream" is not unique to America. All humans dream of material plenty, freedom from abuse and tyranny. Since Reagan and Thatcher and the under-cutting of social justice in the world by financial elites ("neo-coservatism") that dream has been damaged. Brexit and the election of Trump are symptoms of the anger and hopeless feelings of the ordinary citizens of the developed world. But the "dream" can be rescued by the votes of wise citizens for politicians of the moderate left (liberals and social democrats).  The world is in a temporary crisis that can be solved by political reforms.
My problem is simple: I just know better than everyone-else!
