And here is an article which discussed the dangerously and recklessly absurd agenda to increase Australia's population to 35 million.
It ought to be quite obvious to anyone, except maybe politicians and economists, that population increase translates into living standard decrease, and besides that, Australia already has environmental fatigue, destruction and resource depletion well beyond its human carrying capacity. - Dave
THE Australian population will explode to 35 million people in a generation, and we will be younger than previously thought.
Our demographic surge will be driven by more women of childbearing age, higher fertility rates, and increased net overseas migration.
Treasurer Wayne Swan will today provide a glimpse into the future when he reveals key details from the much-anticipated third Intergenerational Report, The Courier-Mail reports.
The full report, due to be released before next year's federal Budget, is a crucial planning tool.
With Treasury Secretary Ken Henry's review of the nation's taxation system, the intergenerational data will guide the Rudd Government's policies for the nation's growing and ageing population.
Mr Swan will tell the launch of the Australian Institute For Population Ageing Research in Sydney that the proportion of people over 65 will almost double to 25 per cent of all Australians in 2049.
