520    Global Talent seeks to examine the utility of skilled 
       foreigners beyond their human capital value by focusing on
       their social capital potential, especially their role as 
       transnational bridges between host and home countries. Gi-
       Wook Shin and Joon Nak Choi build on an emerging stream of
       research that conceptualizes global labor mobility as a 
       positive-sum game in which countries and businesses 
       benefit from building ties across geographic space, rather
       than the zero-sum game implied by the "global war for 
       talent" and "brain drain" metaphors. The book empirically 
       demonstrates its thesis by examination of the case of 
       Korea: a state archetypical of those that have been 
       embracing economic globalization while facing a 
       demographic crisis-and one where the dominant narrative on
       the recruitment of skilled foreigners is largely negative.
       It reveals the unique benefits that foreign students and 
       professionals can provide to Korea, by enhancing Korean 
       firms' competitiveness in the global marketplace and by 
       generating new jobs for Korean citizens rather than taking
       them away. As this research and its key findings are 
       relevant to other advanced societies that seek to utilize 
       skilled foreigners for economic development, the arguments
       made in this book offer insights that extend well beyond 
       the Korean experience
