    I thought quite a few countries have such policies. Often they give immigration rights in return for investments if a certain monetary amount or employing given number of people.

      The US has such a system, although it’s a lot more complex and you only get a permanent resident visa (so you have to go through naturalization). And I’ve heard references to a similar Canadian program.

    The US will give a green card to foreigners who invest in US businesses.

    I see no reason to worry about what the Euros do with type of program.

    Ever read Neal Stephenson’s The Diamond Age? I think that’s the one where he deals with the implications of franchisee-style citizenship.
