Dean Raghu Sundaram is quoted in a peer-school roundup of b-school deans' reactions to the suspension of H-1B visas, noting that the restraints will restrict innovation, economic recovery, and the potential for economic growth, hurting all Americans

Excerpt from Poets & Quants -- NYU Stern School of Business Dean Raghu Sundaram calls Trump’s move a 'zero-sum presupposition' and says it will damage the U.S. economy in ways that will hurt all Americans. 'We are deeply disappointed by the restrictions placed on high-skilled immigrants coming to the United States,' he tells P&Q, 'and by the zero-sum presupposition behind this move. These restraints will restrict innovation, economic recovery, and the potential for economic growth, hurting all Americans. Last fall we, along with many of our peers, signed an open letter to U.S. policymakers with GMAC to stress the importance of international mobility to the global economy — a position that has taken on new urgency and by which we unambiguously stand today and re-endorse.'"
