Why is the United States losing its best and brightest?

The United States is losing its most promising young scientists and engineers, and is also losing its brightest young people, according to a study that looked at the state of U.S. science and engineering.

“The United States faces a severe and chronic shortage of highly skilled scientists and engineering workers,” said John Henson, who led the study at Johns Hopkins University.

The shortage of young people in the United Kingdom and other European countries has become a major focus of U,S.

policy makers, including the Trump administration.

Last year, the U.K. government launched a “brain drain” scheme, which aims to recruit high-skilled people from the U,K., and elsewhere to the United State and other parts of the world.

In a statement to The Washington Post, the British government said that the United Nations General Assembly voted in February to end the British-led scheme, arguing that it was causing “devastating social and economic consequences.”

“Our country needs young talent to ensure that Britain is leading the way in technology, medicine, science and innovation, and this will be done with the full knowledge and full cooperation of the United Nation,” the statement said.

“It is vital that we can continue to attract young talent from across the world.”

The U.N. General Assembly vote, however, came just days after a similar plan was scrapped in the U.,K.

and other EU countries, which have long sought to attract the brightest and best from outside their borders.

According to the Ullstein Eidenhofer Foundation, the European Union, in its own study of the STEM workforce, identified the U-shaped region as one of the biggest STEM talent gaps in the world, which is expected to worsen under the Trump presidency.

U.S.-based researchers say that the U.’s STEM workforce needs to be at the top of the list when it comes to attracting the best young talent.

A key part of the solution, they say, is to increase access to the skills that young people are most likely to be able to acquire.

This is not just about bringing the best in the technology industry, the researchers say.

It’s about putting the best minds to work on projects that are relevant to our country and to the world,” said Andrew H. Smith, a senior vice president at the STEM Institute at Johns.

But there are serious hurdles.

If there are enough of these young scientists or engineers, the United states will never be competitive globally, he added.

Instead, the best talent in the country will be left behind in other countries, particularly China and India, which are already losing out on the U and other advanced nations.

It is not easy for any nation to get ahead of the U.,” said Steve Strom, an associate professor of management at the University of Pennsylvania.

“But if we are to do our job, it’s important to focus on getting those countries ahead of us.”

The Trump administration has made its push to get STEM jobs back on track by increasing immigration and by slashing the number of visas available for high school graduates.

On Wednesday, President Trump announced a plan to eliminate the so-called “deportation force” that has been at the center of the immigration debate.

The program has allowed millions of people from countries with weak labor markets to come to the country.

The new plan, known as the STEM visa lottery, allows those with STEM degrees in science, technology, engineering and math to come into the country, but requires them to work in jobs that are outside the STEM field.

The White House has not provided an estimated timeline for the plan to take effect.

Immigration experts said that eliminating the lottery, as well as reducing the number and types of visas that can be issued, would help to make the U’s STEM workforce competitive internationally.

But critics, including some Republicans, have expressed concerns that the plan would put too many Americans at risk.
