A fine example of the government succumbing to the idea of 'never-ending-growth' and the universities saying they love the government so the unis can get more government assistance. The way this affects the poor and middle class Australians is that it threatens to increase our population more and make housing in and around universities more unaffordable for all Australians, except those very few who already have houses to rent out. The report is unintentionally biased towards the profiteers and special uni interests. Those who like the report don't understand economics and sustainability, or perhaps do but don't care.

This will not be possible until and unless Australia: 1.improves its image as a tolerant country; 2.introduces better work experience and job prospects for graduating students, like in the US and UK; 3. provides uniform visa rules for all foreign nationals; and 4. provides assurance that students' security is a prime concern. I am a person who brings international students here but am rethinking my plans as fewer seem willing to come to Australia.
