India's Reply To Brain Drain

Has it ever occurred to anyone's mind that why we Indians are always so much attracted to work and live in distant far off lands quitting the warmth and comfort of our very own home and don’t even give it any second thoughts before leaving all our loved ones behind.
Can't we turn the drift the other way round ??
Why don’t people from other countries prefer to come to India, as we remain captivated towards the western countries?
If we want India to emerge as a shining beacon of the 21st Century, then we have to build such a Global Community, where the most talented people from all over the Globe can come and contribute to the progress and at the same time feel like home. We should make arrangements to attract such vast talent pools from all across the globe. People from all nationalities should get lured to study, work or travel in India.
We have to grow our societies to such standards, where there would be no place for orthodoxy or conservativeness. We should start treating all the citizens as equal; there should be no place for any discrimination based on Caste or Religion. The deep ravine between the opposite sexes should be eliminated completely, and both the sexes should get equal opportunities to move ahead and make their own identities. We have to rise above the outdated doctrines of our society.
We should be enough self-conscious and self-aware of our surroundings, our environment, become logical, become broad-minded.
And the only thing in my knowledge that can infuse all this positivity in us is Education.
We the mob, the common man, of India is still so much preoccupied within themselves to make the ends meet, to earn a better livelihood for himself and his family or his coming generations, that they are forced to leave their beloved motherland much reluctantly in quest of better opportunities.
Why can’t we create those opportunities here ? That environment here ?
Entrepreneurs and Government should join hands to make India a better place. In other words to create such a world-class environment, India needs to undergo a rapid and intense Capitalism in every phase.
This is the only way that we can bring our stolen Kohinurs back to us, and will be able to reverse the order of Brain Drain effectively in generations to come.

The Intuitive Lowest Cost Method

The Intuitive Lowest Cost Method Or The Minimum Cell Cost Method

The Intuitive Lowest Cost Method is a cost based approach to finding an initial solution to a transportation problem.
It makes allocations starting with the lowest shipping costs and moving in ascending order to satisfy the demands and supplies of all sources and destinations.

This straightforward approach uses the following steps.
Identify the cell with the lowest cost.Allocate as many units as possible to that cell without exceeding the supply or demand.Then cross out the row or column or both that is exhausted by the above assignment.Move on to the next lowest cost cell and allocate the remaining units.Repeat the above steps as long as all the demands and supplies are not satisfied. 
When we use the Intuitive Approach to the Bengal Plumbing problem, we obtain the solution as below.

Vogel's Approximation Method (VAM)

The Vogel's Approximation Method

In addition to the North West Corner and Intuitive Lowest Cost Methods for setting an initial solution to transportation problems, we can use another important technique - Vogel's Approximation Method (VAM).
Though VAM is not quite as simple as Northwest Corner approach, but it facilitates a very good initial solution, one that is often the optimal solution.
Vogel's Approximation Method tackles the problem of finding a good initial solution by taking into account the costs associated with each alternative route, which is something that Northwest Corner Rule did not do.

To apply VAM, we must first compute for each row and column the penalty faced if the second best route is selected instead of the least cost route.

To illustrate the same, we will look at the Bengal Plumbing transportation problem.

Oligopsony

Oligosony is a Market Form in which the number of buyers is small while number of sellers in theory could be large. This typically happens in a market where numerous suppliers are competing to sell their product to a small number of (often large & powerful) buyers. This allows buyers to exert a great deal of control over the sellers and can effectively drive down prices. An Oligopsony is a form of imperfect competition. It contrasts with Oligopoly, where there are many buyers but few sellers. However, Oligopsony tends to be just as prevalent in the real world. In fact, the firms operating as Oligopoly in an output market, also often operate as Oligopsony in an input market. Most of the standard analysis that applies to the Oligopoly also applies to the Oligopsony. When a small number of relatively large buyers dominate an industry , they tend to dominate most facets of the industry. The reason that the term Oligopsony is seldom used is that term Oligopoly usually covers the entir…
