Officials have denied il, and slcUisIies have touched it, as if ttiere were a taboo on what could IJR construed as a blemish on the socialist Utopia. Now it has conic out into the open: newspapers have taken it up. Possibly i( wa.s the recent "flight'1 to the American Inter- national 1'cJephoiiR nnd Telc- Company o( Mr. Kurt Katzeff, director of research at L. Jl. Ericsson, the Swedish telecommunications, company that induced Ihe publicity. II presented the brain drain in easily comprehensible terms, dramatically suggesting that a national prestige industry bad been defeated by a foreign com- petitor. But this was only the tip of the iceberg. Executives and technologists in the middle and higher echelons have long been seeking belter places. They have not only gone (o North America and Australasia, those traditional havens of the ambi- tious and disaffected, but lo tho countries of llic European Com- nioti Market. For, scon from Sweden, neutral and condemn- ed to exclusion from that league, the Common Market ap- pears to be a vigorous provid- er of opportunity. TAXKS BLAMED Tlie most obvious, and most oEtcn quoted, cause of emigra- tion is taxation. Leaders of sci- ence and industry in Sweden are heavily penalized, having to give up more than 60 per cent of their income on average. De- ductions are meagre but incli- i rccL taxation is burdensome. with a 17 per cent I'alue added I tax on everything, food u.elud- ed. To make a comparison: an American executive with an an- nual income of S20.000 pays about 25 per cent in tax: to obtain the same net amount, a Swede would have lo earn .-bout 50.000 Rras.s To put Ihis into perspective, tfic Swedish cost of living is slightly higher than the Ameri- can, and much higher than the British. Swedish social security used lo keep people at home: tin longer. A spokesman tor Alfa- Laval, Hie cenlrifupe manufac- turers, says that Swedes have discovered "Hint in many olhcr countries, social scanty is just as pood." Deyond crass economic cal- culations lies the quality of life In Sweden this is prowinp less and less aUractivc to Ihe man- agerial classes. Mousing policy is such that, the attainment of a luxury JKJIIIC in keeping with one's sending is probhibitive'y expensive. The? policy of equal- ity has been applied to the- roof over the Swede's head and the umbilicus Swede resents il. PLAYS PART Education also a part. Many Swedes regard their own schools as mediocre and in- struments of brain uvishinp. They believe thai abroad their children will have heller schooling. II is a fairly common com- plaint thai the atmosphere of Sweden is "stifling." Scientists and engineers will say thai elsewhere they may be able to produce better and more origin- al work. Over the past decade. Swedish aerospace and comput- cr tcrhuoJoyisIs have moved to AniCL'ica in large numbers. In- dustry is finding il extremely diftieull to recruit Hie top Swed- ish brains, and (o attract for- eign replacements is virtually impossible. Il is not only in science and technology ihul the brain-drum proceeds. Doctors move too. Advertising executives h a v o also been known to emigrate, dr.spilu Ihe language barrier. Figures arc hard to come by, and oblique reckoning, ns in Kromlinoloyy, must he resorted nual outflow of qualified sclen- lists and at around o( business execu- tives perhaps Mic same. And this Is the cream of the pro- fessions in a population of about cipht. millkni. The worries of industrialists aud the reti- cence of official .Tptiloyists ara understandable. Canada ahead on plans on human environment OTTAWA (C.T'i Canadn is a .slop or tivo alienrl of most otlicr I nations in many cif llic prcipo1--' to come hcfore llic Nnlions conference on the human cnvlroniucut in Stock-! r.olni in Jum.1, says Kymard Corbin, chairman of the na- tional preparatory Ilo commenting here mi Die ilraft of a declara- tion on HIP Imtnaii eiivh'oiiniciH submitter!

"But we're not coiny os (or or ris. fast as might and noL as far as some would like lo SQU us BO." Mr. Corbin, Liberal MP for iMadawaska-Viclorifi, is parlia- ment uvy secretary to Environ- ment Minis! cr Jack Davis. The question tor Canada mid otlicr conference pjirlici- j is how much economic growth enn he promoted at the expense of pollution. For a vis- ing number of environmen- talists, and some leading econo- mists, the credo of ever-mereas- inj; PL'onomic growth lias be- come a real issue of dcbatc.
