Filippo Beretta on Global Mobility
Long Island, NY – May 09, 2010 – Filippo Beretta, Founder and Partner of Motu Novu, speaks on global mobility at a conference on Italian talents abroad hosted by SUNY Stony Brook.
The State University of New York at Stony Brook hosted yesterday a conference on Italian talents around the world. The conference, moderated by Sergio Nava of Radio 24, discussed whether Italy is progressively losing its human capital, to the benefit of other nations, and what the country should do to entice its expatriates to return home.
Among the speakers was Filippo Beretta, Founder and Partner of Motu Novu. Taking a characteristically contrarian approach, he rejected the notion that Italy should attempt to stem its new emigration wave. "The real issue faced by our country, and frankly by most of the western world, is not how to restrain migration, inbound or outbound. Speed of information has increased tremendously over the past 20 years. Today, capital (human or financial) moves much faster. The issue is thus how to facilitate global mobility, how to remove barriers to the circulation of high-caliber people, technology, money." He added: "Capital will move globally following opportunity, like it always has, only faster, and it will not accrue to those countries that make access comparatively more difficult."
