A Knowledge Economy

by Joseph McKeown

"To lead the world in this new economy, we need the most talented and hardest-working people. We need to train and attract the best...Given all this, why do we kick out the more than 40 percent of math and science graduate students who are not U.S. citizens after educating them? Why do we offer so few H-1B visas for talented specialists that the supply runs out within days of becoming available each year, even though we know each of these jobs will create two or three more American jobs in return?"
