Population and Migration Policy
From Per Capita one of the better reports on population able to say that population levels are not definitive, only patchy expert data available (like too many research fields at the centre of debate in Australia) and one would add “population” has become politicised due to being the “touchstone” issue of anti immigrationists, racists, populist politicians, environmentalists etc. Additionally, does not address issues related to how Australians live, and have lived i.e. lack of urban planning, profligate use of natural resources e.g. Murray Darling, large houses, car use, brown coal fired power stations, state system that leads to capital cities hogging resources thus becoming population magnets at the expense of regonal development.
