Thanks Daniel, On point 1), the fact that future generations will no longer live in the poor country, but grow up in a rich country should be considered a massive plus I would think. Taking into account the increase in welfare of future generations in this way would increase the benefits of high-skilled emigration. Your point 3) is one that is often made, but very hard to quantify. Given the large numbers of skilled migrants that return with knowledge and experience of how institutions can work better abroad, high-skilled emigration can actually support this professional middle class in some cases.
