    It is often argued by pro-immigrationists that because domestic water usage
    only accounts for 11 percent of total water usage, Australia can support a
    much larger population. What they dont say is that the remaining 89 % of
    water is needed to produce Australia's economic wealth. While it is argued
    that water charges should increase several fold, what is not said is that
    the cost of food and consumables would rise as a result, perhaps damaging
    Australia's economic competitiveness.
