Launch of SPA Discussion Paper: Population growth and Infrastructure in Australia: the catch-up illusion

Sustainable Population Australia (SPA) launched our discussion paper: Population growth and infrastructure in Australia: The catch-up illusion.

The launch was held in Sydney, November 26,  hosted by Professor Bob Carr (SPA Patron) and Leith Van Onselen from MacroBusiness, lead author of the paper.  It was very well attended by a cross section of the community, including concerned residents, envrionmentalists, academics and the media.

This paper and the launch is the culmination of several months’ effort by the SPA team.
