    If I was a (relatively) young, unattached person with a PhD in the Humanities/Liberal Arts and had a very small chance of getting a university teaching job in the US, and a very good chance of driving a cab (or whatever) then I think I'd be sending off my CV. I might not take the job but it's always good to maximize your options.

    Agreed. Better to live well in another country than live poorly in the U.S.

    Is there something inherently "wrong" or not "right" about legally moving to a place where one's quality of life may be higher and where there are better work opportunities? I'm not sure that I follow here.

    Well, I guess it's a values thing. As for me, I won't be at all surprised if someday I'm living in another country and (hopefully) have a higher standard of living because my skills are more sought after.

    I agree completely and now with the online learning environment continuously expanding, there are so many opportunities to live in a place where one wants to live and possibly at a higher living standard while still drawing a decent American salary. As long as one is doing things legally and respecting the laws and customs of their new country, I don't see any problems.
