Does Melbourne have a future as a city of eight million people?

- Dr Michael Buxton
21st May 2015

"Melbourne has moved almost unnoticed into a new kind of city with needs that conventional politics cannot satisfy. Only a radical new type of government intervention which integrates fragmented institutions, ends market domination over land use and achieves long term, cross-party policy will prevent Melbourne becoming disfunctional"
