Richard Vedder on the French

Richard Vedder participated in The New York Times' "Room for Debate" discussion on the topic: Why French Scholars Love U.S. Colleges.

Here's what he had to say about why French scholars immigrate to the United States:
It is true that of the four leading nationality groups of Europe -- British, French, Germans and Russians – the French are the least prone to emigrate, perhaps because of heightened ethnocentric behavior. But love of country, language, culture and even fine indigenous wines only goes so far -- if the enticements are big enough, even the French will move.
