Letters: Politics to blame


by C.A. Rule

News Weekly, February 23, 2002

Sir,

I refer to the letter in the in which your correspondent, Dr Carter, says: "Let us have discussion in these pages on population but let it be based on facts and not on the dogma of vested interests that promote the "growth is good for us" story." (NW, February 9)

I would like to ask Dr Carter where the evidence is for the suggestion in the conclusion to his letter that "major population build-up in Argentina" under Peron was a cause of the economic decline of Argentina. My own reading of the situation is that poor governance and bad economic management, to say nothing of greed and corruption, have been the main factors in the economic decline of Argentina.

C.A. Rule,
Gilmore, ACT
