Abstract

During the past four decades, the Macedonian economy has experienced fundamental changes influenced by the increasing emigration and in particular of the highly skilled workers’ emigration. Globalizing forces have reduced barriers to labor mobility across countries and economies especially for highly skilled workers. During the last few decades there has been an increase in the importance of the ‘knowledge economy’ and thus the demand for such category of workers. There is a wide consensus that impact of such a trend for developing economies is predominantly negative and multidimensional: from losing one of the major production factors through non-refundable costs for the national economy incurred during the education process of the emigrating workers to pressure on local wages increase. Combination of these factors has urged for the need of brain drain policy for workers that are motivated to emigrate. Paper is focusing on corruption as a trigger for higher brain drain rates and will analyze possible outcome strategies. In particular paper will analyze the extent of which anticorruption measures can positively impact decrease of the brain drain are policies in such sector good or simply high gap among the salaries between the emigration economy and immigration economy are irreversible motivation to leave the country.
