The flight, because of Trump, of our most precious resource: human brain capital. (Mind wells are far more valuable than oil wells.) Trump has inspired a brain drain of no less than thirteen climate researchers to France. This recalls Einstein’s early exit from Nazi Germany in 1933: he could discern the direction of the political winds from Hitler’s rise to power. It’s what happens when the Anglo-French Enlightenment comes under assault by anti-Enlightenment, despotic know-nothings: the practitioners of reason at the highest levels emigrate to greener pastures. Atlases shrug.
