I would like to comment about the GOOD.
If and whenever Malta imports brains from abroad is a good symptom. It
means that we will soon be able to do what the imported brains are doing.
If such imported brains are imported because they can do what we cannot
do yet than it is a good import after all I would rather have that than
have a brain drain, which then again would be a GOOD because it would
mean we are exporting education.
