    So why are Chinese restaurants all over the world? (Because the Chinese are all over the world)

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | July 18, 2007

    Professor Peter Kwong, who studies Chinese immigration and labor issues, has an amazingly detailed piece about the Chinese diaspora on the Yale Global web site.

    About 180 million people around the world have moved countries since the end of the Cold War, about one-tenth of them are Chinese. The Chinese have spread to 150 countries. He basically discusses the tension between citizens of countries (who want to keep their nation borders intact) and employers (who want cheaper labor). The result is a lot of illegal immigration driven underground. Some interesting factoids with my expanded thoughts.
