The Australian Governments and their Land Sales. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 27 March 1875

The Australian Governments and their Land Sales. ffrtm lie Faaacier, Decanter 31/) Anything which concerns the financial position of a country is worthy of careful attention on the part both of its rulers and its people. Every country at one time or another needs to contract loans, and the sounder and wider its foundations of prosperity, the easier the terms at which it can borrow. High credit means cheap loans ; hence it is an im portant element of profit to a nation. Loans, in fact, are indispensable to almost every country, and certainly to j every young country, as a means of real ; economy, by die construction of public : works, &O, to devdope die weaWnnak- ! mg resources of Ae fjcrritory. No State in the world can borrow on such «asy serms as the British Govern ment, and it may be said that no country ? in the world ought to possess a sounder financial position and better credit than oar Ansnalian colonies. They have a territory equal in magnitude to two-thirds ofthe w...
