Economic Analysis: Western Talent Could Flee to Iran, Russia, China

Québec, 26th March 2014, (SPNW) - According to information in one of the chapters of a new scientific periodical, countries such as Iran, Syria, Russia and China currently have the potential to develop into technological and economic hubs in the near future. The author also maintains that Iran with the help of Syria and Russia could attract significant numbers of talented westerners from the currently dwinding middle class in many of the malaise-stricken economies of Europe and North America.

The recently-released publication which is entitled Journal of the Governor of The SPACEPOL Corporation presents cause for alarm in the West and could by all means give rise to a very heated media debate. A brief discussion of the potential strengths of countries such as Iran, Syria, Russia and China as well as a potentially dangerous future process of reverse brain drain from the West is one of the more peculiar and interesting discussions in the newly released volume.

The background and future of the "res communis" regime in the Law of Outer Space is also discussed in some detail and critiqued by an expert author who previously wrote the first academic thesis in Europe dealing with the subject of regime change in Space Law. A challenge to existing legal frameworks entitled "unexpected contexts" is posited and developed as well in a discussion on the future of Space Law. According to the author, Gunnar K. A. Njålsson, space-faring nations such as the United States and Russia will likely be creating alternatives to the current non-ownership rules so engrained in outer space treaties to date.

In an interview with Seychelles Nation author Njalsson pointed out that any move by Iran, Russia or Syria to overtake the EU or the United States and lead the way as alternate hubs for advanced technologies would ultimately fail, unless each of these countries could overcome differences and efficiently benefit from non-native talent. Njalsson seems somewhat sceptical about this when it comes to Iran and Syria and compares both countries to smaller EU states which tend to "patronize their own". However, Njalsson, does not rule out that both Iran and Syria could adopt policies and programmes to create effective recruitment and placement of talent from the EU, Canada or the US if they manage to take a long-term stance and a global view of the challenges in this area.

The Journal of the Governor of The SPACEPOL Corporation has as one of its primary tasks to provide a first-person account of the leadership of The SPACEPOL Corporation and of its history. However, the academic periodical makes interesting reading for a much wider audience and delves into Business Management and Strategy issues such as corporate espionage, protecting corporate trade secrets in research and development as well as strategies needed in a minority-run high-knowledge entrepreneurship.

It even introduces some novel concepts such as “exit networking” for enterprises considering divestiture or actually in the process of exiting a dysfunctional, protectionist or unprofitable market.

Scientific Modeling and a new model for Technology Policy and National Innovation Analysis are also introduced.
