Just add water


Presidential campaigns are rife with vague and in-actionable policy proscriptions. For example, “supporting fair trade” or “balancing the budget.”

But you got to feel for the candidates — it’s difficult to find silver bullets. Most real change requires a tough combination of money, organizational capacity, structural change etc.

But not always.

There’s one policy change that will increase US prosperity, raise standards of living, reduce global poverty AND bolster our long-term competitiveness.

Best of all: To implement it will require just a single keystroke.

Take the number of permitted H1B visas this year (85,000). Add a zero to the end.
