Immigration to developing world – Answer to job losses in West

The issue of economic slowdown and problems with US and European economies to push up fast to get back to normal are hitting common man now.
Several cases of long term unemployment and dire state of several well to do executives who are unable to find a suitable position over several months to more than a year is snowballing into global crisis. Third world countries like India have been almost always under this issue where high unemployment has been a normal thing.

“Several cases of long term unemployment and dire state of several well to do executives who are unable to find a suitable position over several months to more than a year is snowballing into global crisis. “

Educated youths had very little scope in local geographies and therefore immigration became a standard. If you look in the demography of US, more than 2 million Indians make up US Indian community. In these two millions, almost all are well educated and doing well in their life. In some recent studies, it was found that Indian community in US constitutes the most well to do society and the community contributing in a big way to the progress of the country.
With third world countries now becoming big economic powers, open up huge job opportunities for all such American and European citizen who are willing to relocate and take chances. It is high time, when governments of all such effected countries in North America and Europe should take steps in making this migration happen. This will help everyone in the process.
While there will be millions of jobs created for all those who are now finding shrinking jobs in their home countries, it will immensely benefit the developing countries will the talent pool which is not available in numbers which are required right now.
The question which I ask everyone now is that why only Indians have to immigrate to US and Europe as a single way process. Why doesnt this process start from the USA and Europe too? Scope is immense from education, student placements and anyone, but governments have to work towards this mega change which has potential to change the way we have been looking at things so far.
