Continuing the discussion from Should there be a limit on the number of children one person can have?:
Last night’s Four Corners and Q&A focused on population. It seems most Australians feel that there are enough of us - we don’t need any more people. I reckon we can’t sustain the numbers we have for much longer.

Discussion centred mostly around things like economics and infrastructure. I reckon the environment is what will bite us, but that got surprisingly little attention.

The last ten minutes of Q&A are quite positive. If we’re to reduce our immigration intake, then perhaps we can compensate with foreign aid - encouraging people to stay where they are.

Population is a minefield. Do we want the Party to have a policy? If so, what should it be?
