Among the many changes that are part of the emergence of a global economy is a radically different relationship between U.S. high-tech companies and their employees.

U.S. policymakers need to learn more about these developments so that they can make the critical choices about how to nurture a key ingredient in the nation's future economic health, the STEM workforce. U.S. corporate leaders are not hiding the fact that globalization has fundamentally changed how they manage their human resources. Craig Barrett, then the chief executive officer (CEO) of Intel Corporation, said that his company can succeed without ever hiring another American.
