We? Is Salmon an American citizen? But I suppose all the colonies treat the imperial capital as home.

You are indeed right about South Korea has the best IT infrastructure in the world and also very conservative. There is some parts that requires further recent information on Korean entrepreneurs. I am now in middle of my 20s and university graduate in London and hold a graduate program offer as an analyst with one of a prominent investment banks in the World. I have the following concerns for your post.

Some of your evidences are not up to date at all in regard to a public perception on starting up the new company is no loner held as going against the system. The point I am making here is that younger generations do not regard starting up a new company goes against system. I have seen at least 5 to 6 friends of mines who have graduated from Stanford, Yale and Harvard had come together under my former internship at KPMG Korea and expressed a great deal of interest in starting up businesses in both US and Korea. We commonly share the viewpoint that when we are born as Korean, there will be definitely need to work for Korea at certain point of time.

Cultural aspect has not clearly taken into account. Your concept of importing and exporting the entrepreneurs between US and Korea is also despicable as you do have clear comprehension of how SMEs are evolving and competes one of the toughest market in developed nations where US has better environment and policies for entrepreneurs and for the new start ups by also taking into account the size of economy between two countries.

If your argument is held to be true “ The US has always been the biggest importer of entrepreneurs on the planet. It is perfectly ok if we export some as well”, what is happening with the US economy with failing SMEs and worsening economic national account figures? I clearly do not see correlation between number of entrepreneurs export to foreign nations and productivity in your country. So, I guess this proves that Korean’s gain is America’s loss might not be true

You could not be more wrong with your support of the “sensible” immigration policy. It’s an epic fail brought to you by the “Commerce” [aka Big Business] dept.

Jobs “requiring” H1 visas don’t pay anything resembling a competitive salary because it’s modern day indentured servitude. What you’ll find is that any company that can get an H1 will pay them significantly less and work them more.. because the threat is “We’ll throw you back to (India/China/Vietnam)!” You have to work for that company for 4 years (or more depending on position) at the ridiculously low salary they “offer,” because it’s not just an at-will job, it’s a contract.

Why hire an American when they can low-ball some foreign kid with no friends in that city to work 80 hours a week and never complain?

And don’t be confused about the quality of work: Even if it’s just IT, “outsourced” code regularly has to be redone in the US by the few older Americans who have the skills.. at twice the cost because the foreigners didn’t comment and did a shoddy job. This bill surely does, however, increase the potential profits of multinationals because now they don’t have to pay things like a “competitive salary” to those positions any more.

The only way the US could actually decrease the unemployment rate of engineers and scientists in the US is by eliminating the H1 visa entirely.

There are plenty of small companies in Korea, what is lacking is mid-sized ones.

As for leaving Samsung, the reason they will see you as crazy is because you will have had to fought tooth and nail to get in and there are alot of social goodies that come with being a mid-level person in such a company that you will need to be very very successful to overcome as a CEO.
