Stimulus, schmimulus, it's startups that will bring the economy around, wrote Reid Hoffman for TechCrunch.
In addition to promoting small business loans, he also suggests a policy change for H-1B visas, with a focus on education funding.
2. Abolish the limit on H-1B Visas. Remove the cap on H-1B visas and impose a 10 percent payroll tax beyond the benchmark salary for each visa. Then channel the proceeds from the payroll tax into US re-education programs.
According to Wikipedia, The H1-B visa is issued to foreign workers in specialty jobs, such as architecture, biotechnology, education, law and other fields, currently limited to 65,000 annually with a few exceptions.
