It seems that when it rains it pours (see also Reading at Risk - Nation at Risk). This morning the Wall Street Journal’s lead editorial highlighted the insanity that continues in our land with the handling of wealth generating intellectual talent. Our laws and regulations make it easy for foreigners to get their education here after which they are forced/encouraged to go back to their home countries to compete against our industries. Moreover, when US companies need to hire foreign talent, the feds make that double difficult through the dysfunctional H-1B visa program and other regulations. And because this is an issue beyond the ken of most voters, the system remains broken under the mantra that ‘we must protect American jobs’.
