Booklet - Stephen J. Rimmer, 'The Cost of Multiculturalism', Australian League of Rights, 1991 Document Reg. No: HT 3110

Summary:
Booklet titled 'The Cost of Multiculturalism' written by Stephen J. Rimmer and published by the Australian League of Rights in 1991. The author argues that the policy of multiculturalism has: seen the growth of government funded ethnic groups which have exerted considerable influence over Australia's immigration program; seen Australian governments employ ethnicity as a criterion for the allocation of public goods and services for many cultural and economic activities, which has resulted in increased wasteful government spending; and it has reduced Australia's efficiency, productivity and international competitiveness via the declining English language skills of immigrants. He also argues that there has been a systematic attempt by sections of the Federal and State Governments in Australia first to hide, then to distort, the real costs of multiculturalism.
