Eric Wise on H1-B visas

Amen: Eric Wise : Should we uncap H1-B visas?

The U.S. hands out 65,000 (temporary)H1-B visas per year, to people who have received degrees from U.S. colleges and universities. At the same time, through the annual green card lottery (formally known as the Diversity Lottery), the U.S. hands out 55,000 permanent work and residency visas to anyone who is not from an over-represented country, who has a high-school diploma or 2 years of work experience that requires prior training, and who manages to send in the application during the one month window. Which program makes more sense?
