Could a Visa Auction Fix Immigration?

"The plan would go like this: Companies that want to hire immigrants
would bid for a number of visas made available by Congress.  They could
trade or resell the permits. Immigrants could move between companies as
needed.  This plan — which would be rolled out in phases,
starting with a pilot program that would auction off temporary work
visas, including those for some agricultural and technical work –could
simplify and streamline today’s lumbering immigration system, according
to Giovanni Peri, a professor at the University of California Davis.  His
proposal was released Tuesday by the Brookings Institution." –
