    Part of the whole "Erasmus generation" is that conditions within countries change and it's relatively easy for a citizen in a poorly-off EU nation to find employment elsewhere in the EU.  For example, Ireland has historically exported its young.  For some years it attracted immigrants, but now it's exporting its young again.  

    Also, a young Pole who emigrates from Warsaw to London travels about 1100 miles.  A young American emigrating from Jackson, MS to New York City travels 1200 miles.  Those distances are significant, but not insurmountable (especially on a continent with subsidized railways going everywhere).

    "Politics should be the part-time profession of every citizen who would protect the rights and privileges of free people and who would preserve what is good and fruitful in our national heritage." -- Lucille Ball
