Immigration: The Capitalist Way

Professor Gary Becker of the University of Chicago is thinking about immigration. He suggests an system of purchasing citizenship. I don't think it's a terrible idea. I don't know if it would make a huge impact on illegal immigration (esp. from Mexico), but I do think it would help get more highly skilled workers into the country who really want to come here and work, which would be a good thing.
