It’s interesting to compare Paul Kelly’s Saturday column with the observations of Adam Creighton’s Monday column (both in The Australian) and it strikes me that what Adam Creighton is describing with our year on year economic growth linked to our population increase, is nothing short of a demographic or population Ponzie scheme whereby as long as we keep recruiting new participants or immigrants into the scheme, the returns and the economic growth will continue. The problem with Ponzie schemes though is that they are unsustainable and when the music stops the entire edifice will begin to crumble and collapse.
