My post on Immigration Reform

“More “Brains”: bright foreign born students with American Education and Smart Entrepreneurs joining the American economy (rather than leaving for his / her emerging country). We surely don’t want foreign born students to leave our country once they are done with their Engineering or PhD degrees. 

As is evident from FWD.US, high tech companies enthusiastically support the immigration reform. They want to turn more of smart foreign Engineers into American Engineers.Statistics reflect the motivation that is driving the high tech companies.  

In 2010, Asian Americans became the majority of tech workforce in the valley for the first time, making up 50.1 percent [1].One third of the startups in Silicon Valley are founded by Indian Americans [1].Moreover, immigrants bring new views, new perspectives from which to look at things we got used to. “

    1. Microsoft leapfrogs Exxon to become second largest firm (BBC) 
“Energy giant Exxon has ceded its position as the world’s second-largest public company to tech firm Microsoft, after concerns about the falling price of oil drove its shares down.

Exxon’s shares traded at $94.90 midday on Friday, reducing the total value of all its shares, or market capitalisation, to $401.9bn (£256.7bn). Shares in Microsoft – which have been rising after a strong October earnings report – hit $49.81.
That gives it a value of $410.5bn.
