Overloading Australia

Highly recommended
Australia's population reached 10 million the year I turned 7 (1960), and is now 22 million (see figures). At the current rate, it will be 100 million at the end of this century. Big Biz wants the population to expand as fast as possible to provide new consumers, so both sides of parliament are Big Populationists. Prime Minister Krudd even brags of it. The government gives financial baby bonuses, for fuck's sake!

Mark O'Connor, author of Overloading Australia, was interviewed on the topic, and it makes fascinating listening, not just to Australians, as it applies to the whole world.
