In Vietnam, where I'm currently living, there is no public concern over immigration from the West. That's because the LOWEST paid foreigner here earns about 5 times as much as the average local. At that price, we foreignersâare definitely not taking jobs that could be done by natives. (Most foreigners are either language teachers or working in international trade.)

Let's extend that logic to America. Suppose your average codeserf in Silly Valley earns $150k. (Almost enough to afford your very own studio apartment in a bad neighborhood!) Then we should require foreign workers to be paid at least $750k. Make that change and the rest will quickly sort itself out.
