The article discusses the possibility for a proposed law on migrants in Great Britain to result to a brain drain of foreign employees. The law includes proposals to tax non-domiciled employees in the country and the introduction of the new points-based system (PBS) for migrants. The non-domiciled rules will divert the attention of foreign investors and fund managers abroad, according to city firms. The points-based system is perceived to have severe impact on higher education institutions.
