Cover Story: The new population debate (page 3)
The continuing flow of illegal immigrants arriving on our northern coastline provides a poignant backdrop to the recently reignited debate on population policy.

With the ALP talking about the need for a larger population through immigration and improving the nationÕs fertility rate, it has signalled a divergence in the views of the major parties on this issue.

Dairy deregulation: which way will Victorian farmers vote? (page 5)
The new Victorian Government has decided to put the deregulation of the stateÕs dairy industry on hold pending the results of a poll of dairy farmers. While the milk processors are in favour, a large number of farmers have indicated their opposition to such a move.

Competition, profits and common sense
(page 8)
Competition is seen as central to the functioning of a capitalist economy. With some fanfare, National Competition Policy has been justified as drawing greater efficiencies out of the Australian economy. But does business really act this way? And are the 'efficiencies' really cost-free?

Mutualism: is it a real 'Third Way'? (page 10)
A conference in Melbourne last month discussed the history and current condition of co-operatives and mutual societies. Demutualisation maybe the fashion, but are members - and society at large - being short-changed when such entities are transformed into listed companies.

World Congress supports the natural family (page 12)
The World Congress of Families II was held last month in Geneva, Switzerland. Attended by 1600 delegates from more than 60 countries, it passed a number of resolutions centred on the need to support the natural family.
