Just a little something for all the socialist comments below; the current Greek goverment is socialist only by name. Tsipras won not because our people wanted socialism, but simply because everything else had failed, and they wanted something new- something that he promised. After the election, Tsipras has converted to a pretty standard-issue right-wind goverment; which is basically what we already had, if not worse, but at least it's not the trainwreck I expected it to have.

Canada has this issue too, with the USA. We call it "the brain drain".

Their population is roughly 10x ours, and their economy much larger also. The greater competition between businesses results in higher wages to skilled workers, and lower costs of living. The local Canadian economy just can't match the same salary offers for doctors, lawyers, computer techs, and similarly highly educated professionals. :(

The same thing happens with our entertainment talent too, come to think of it. Again, the population difference is 1:10, but about 1 in 5 of actors, musicians, and comedians working in the USA are Canadian-born. This doesn't usually create the same problems as shortages of qualified doctors, of course. Usually local entertainers start their careers in Canada, then as they begin to get more famous, start expanding into the US, eventually emigrating once they can afford a house in Beverly Hills or similar. Also a lot of entertainers are touring all over the place anyway, living out of hotels, whereas the professionals usually have to live near the company they work for and stay in one spot.

I am Greek and I live in Greece even though I will be moving to the USA in about ten months. I agree with this comic too much XD things here literally suck and everyone leaves for America or usually other European countries

@ dinaarumor
Just because you do not see the cracks does not mean they are not there. Plymouth colony, the French revelation, the USSR, Khmer Rouge...

@Slowburn Yeah. The evidence that Socialism never works is clear for example in Sweden, which has been a socialist country for decades. It's really falling into ruins ;)

@rem1967 I actually want to move to the states once I save up enough and get my engineering degree, the opportunities available in the USA are some of the best of the world. It's really a tie for me between Germany, Singapore, and America.

I hear a lot of Americans giving themselves a hard time over what there country does, but having traveled, I feel safe saying that America is freer than most countries, richer in opportunity, and in general the most fun.
I'd like to point out that under Obama care, my mom would be covered for these drugs.
