Menckens Ghost
How immigrants see America  

Below are two charts from the Economist magazine.  The first shows that the USA is the top choice of potential immigrants; the second shows that Iceland is the most welcoming country towards immigrants.  Iceland?  I taught management classes there and was the darkest person I saw.  Apparently, it's easy to be welcoming in the abstract.  Or maybe the Economist pulled the findings out of its nose.
