A Modest Proposal
This chapter proposes reforming immigration policy to increase the number of permits allowed and to use an auction mechanism to allocate the permits–similar to a proposal made by Gary Becker. Potential migrants, their resident family members, nonprofits, or US businesses could bid for the permits. This chapter argues that this would be a more efficient method of allocating permits than the current system or other “points-based” systems.
