"Jobs, jobs, jobs"

Today's WSJ includes (gated) Robert Litan's "Visas for the Next Sergey Brin ... To create more jobs, let's import more employers ..."

It's one of my favorite themes and I cited recent supporting research in Saturday's blog. But Litan points out that this is more than a long-term growth strategy; it is available for doing something about today's unemployment fairly quickly.

And it sounds like a much better bet than ever more "stimulus". It is a way that politicians can actually do something to "create jobs".
