Abstract
The shift towards recognition of a capital-labour flows have occurred within the broader context of a globalized knowledge economy and a global race for skills. Change in a country’s employment structure is shaped by the evolution of skill supplies, implies that educational expansion and migration flows are crucial to understand occupational change. The local communities, Taiwan is in competition for its share of the intellectual capital and for the best skilled migrants. The aim is to disentangle the strategy applied by Taiwan to adapt its national labour markets to increasing globalization and flexibility demands. The paper is presented as follows. First, to compare national patterns of job growth in Taiwan, extending the discussion of the reach of job polarization. Second, to examine differential patterns, building on the analysis of educational patterns of employment growth. Third, to go about understanding the relationship between capital flows, labour flows and em/migrant resettlement patterns. The impact of economic globalization has on the flows of the highly educated, and documents incentive programs put into place by the government to tap highly educated talent abroad are assessed. A final summary reflects on the key finding, its contribution to the research arena, as well as open questions for future research. The paper delivers both quantitative and qualitative data as well as an account of the relevant labour market reforms.
