Population has become one of the defining issues of the 21st Century. Throughout the developed world and in many developing countries, population growth is stalling and will soon go into decline. The economic, environmental and social ramifications of a shrinking and aging population are profound and were explored at the National Population Summit in 2004. This book presents the papers of many of the country's best thinkers in the area, including business and government leaders, academics, legal experts and conservationists. Most agreed that the future is bleak unless we can agree on an environmentally sustainable approach to population that safeguards the economic future of our country.

Contributors include Malcolm Turnbull, Michael Hickinbotham, Professor Graeme Hugo, The Hon Mike Rann, Bernard Salt, Senator Amanda Vanstone, Robert Champion de Crespigny, Dr Craig Shepherd and Peter Vaughan.
