Recently Kelvin Thomson, Labor Party Federal Member for Wills, called for a change of direction in Australia’s population trajectory, away from the hectic pursuit of higher numbers to a more moderate approach. Here he outlines the forces pushing for growth, exposes seven myths about population growth, and sets out his 14 point plan for an Australian population capped at 26 million together with more generous foreign aid.
