Britain has been hardest hit by the global “brain drain,” according to a recent report.

The report, commissioned by the World Bank, found that more than 1.44 million graduates have left the United Kingdom, while only 1.26 million graduates have immigrated to the UK.

That leaves Britain with a net loss of about 200,000 educated professionals.
