You often hear about companies opening up operations in emerging countries, but it's interesting to see that universities are doing the same. One thought that came to mind after reading this: if our arcane visa laws for talented foreign workers already keep more people than necessary from staying in our country after graduating, then wouldn't these "university outposts" begin to stop the flow of foreign workers who even make it to our country? Seems like short term interests are selling our future short... which is quite the concern.
