    Australia is open for business. I guess he really is keeping his promise to create 1,000,000 jobs, it's just that these jobs aren't for Australians.

    People keep talking about this "budget emergency", it is clear there isn't one. Or is the nobel prize winner for economics not very good with economics?

    Hogwash I say.

    It is pretty obvious. I don't know what sort of evidence you would be looking for.
    A 350% increase in 2 years!
    If that rate of increase continued - we would have 1.9 million arrivals each year by 2019.
    Is that the 'evidence' you were after?

    No, of course that is not evidence. You have absolutely no evidence that 1.9 million people would arrive a year based on the fact that just over 20000 came last year. That is purely speculation, and absolutely ridiculous to be honest. What I mean was, if we took 20,000 people flat rate per year, what impact would that have on Australia into the future? Have you read anything about it? Or is this all just purely speculation on your end?

    You don't seem to be listening or comprehending what I am saying beebs.
    I am not saying that 20,000 per year is unsustainable. I think that that number is, so I don't need to find 'evidence' to the contrary.

    I'll quote my several statements back for you:

    The rate of increase has been marked since 2009. That rate of increase was unsustainable without there being a change in policy.
    Partly, but I was meaning the rate of increase was unsustainable. Labor upped the cap to 20k, but the arrivals in 2013 still overcome that number. They went from 4565 in 2011, to 20587 in 2013. That is a massive increase in such a short time.
    I'll say it again - the rate of increase is not sustainable.

    Do you need me to break that statement down further?
