From the Paper:

"The number of students enrolled in these college courses and majors has declined significantly over the past few years--about 20%. And those continuing in these computer programs, are taking on second majors in other fields like business.
"So, how does this impact the U.S. economy? As these high-paying jobs are outsourced by companies due to lower costs as well as lack of local talent, the loss of this salary revenue into the U.S. economy can become significant as well as the future consumption by these now-unemployed computer programmers and engineers. Again, the amount of tax revenues will also be affected.
"As the problem snowballs, the less high-tech computer employees that graduate from our colleges and universities, the more U.S. companies will have to outsource to all those fine people both China and India are training. And the U.S. economy loses more and more revenue.
"The problem is so evident that Bill Gates has paid visits to college campuses just to encourage students to remain in computer fields."
