How to Keep America Competitive

I came across this brilliant article by Bill Gates in Washington post website, where he stresses upon why H1B visas and Green card program need to be reformed.

I hope somebody reads this to Mr. President and makes him understand the importance of foreign students in the US and their ongoing struggle with Visas.

Love the way Bill Gates signs off the article -
"During the past 30 years, U.S. innovation has been the catalyst for the digital information revolution. If the United States is to remain a global economic leader, we must foster an environment that enables a new generation to dream up innovations, regardless of where they were born. Talent in this country is not the problem -- the issue is political will."
