If a legal system can be gamed, it will be, US visa edition

The New York Times has an article on large outsourcing companies gaming the US H-1B visa application process. The nub of the article is this: “Many of the visas are given out through a lottery, and a small number of giant global outsourcing companies had flooded the system with applications, significantly increasing their chances of success.” The entire article is very interesting and reinforces the need for legislators and policy-makers to think about the unintended consequences of their actions.
