The End of China's Child Limit is Coming

1703 ratings | 89774 views
China's message for couples after decades of limiting families to just one child? Please have more children! Why the turnabout? China’s aging. By 2040, projections show that 24 percent of the population will be aged 65 or older, a slightly higher rate than in the U.S. and more than twice India’s share. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/videos/2018-06-06/please-have-another-baby-video

Africa needs a 1-child policy

But how big a population could China actually support? It’s not as if their population could just grow indefinitely.
fatcat_4444 (3 days ago)
China has a lot of people, but they at least do stuff. India on the other hand, needs a child policy
MrPeace Guy (3 days ago)
India will overtake china in population by 2024. We need better policies to control our population. Its sad because not many ppl might know it but India actually introduced family planning way before China in 1950s and it was even more enforced in 70s. But now we have lots of people. We need to stabilise our population at max to max 1.5 billion and bring it down to 1 billion. Thankfully birth rate has fallen a bit but still some ways to go.

They should put in practice what we have here in Argentina, the AUH (in English: universal allocation per child) so people don't stop having children. It is a monthly pension that is paid to parents that send their child to school, vaccinate him and make him have routine medical checkups. It is paid per child, so a couple with 2 children will have double the help. If they do that in China, given the generally low wages people already do have, it would work greatly towards increasing the fertility rate.

独生子女政策看上去很不人道。。但是如果你有做过细菌培养实验就会知道,当环境资源无法供给种群就会发生种内竞争,导致整个菌群在短时间内严重衰退,独生政策用来控制种群增殖超出资源供给能力防止出现种内斗争、维持国家稳定发展的确是有效的,但是如果资源充足时仍然使用这条可能导致种族灭绝的政策就是不明智甚至错误的。。随着国家的崛起,政府取消这条政策是可以预见的 ..........voice from chinese worker.......

Queen Mo (5 days ago)
Lattrodon no it shouldn’t. If you’re not the hours you use to after giving birth then yeah whatever.
Klavier Gavin (6 days ago)
A solution is setting a concrete deadline for the one-child rule so that the couples can wait out and have another child after the deadline. But it's too late for that.
Kauê Moura (6 days ago)
Make more children to offer cheap labour to those who have money. Yeah, right. Because it's better to grow the economy for the sake of growing it than having a smaller population and better distributed income.

Every countries go through stages. Its called the Demographic transition model.
Alex You (4 days ago)
It should rise up but that isnt guranteed, just look at its neighbour Japan. Ultra low birthrates, and a extremely high average age of the population. The country is literally paying people to have kids and its not even having a large effect.
EXLM Aquarius (4 days ago)
Alex You Its population should level off soon as long as their government makes the right decisions. Chinas people weren't ready for the rapid industrialisation.
Alex You (4 days ago)
Yeah, China basically skipped like 2 stages, before this they were at the same level as many developing countries, and now they have similar birthrates to the western countries.

We need to stop this intelligent race (Asian) over the white race in general. There's no other presucessors than the white race. Mixing racing with someone just because they are intelligent is stupid. Mixing with black people are the worst. White men are not trying their best to be submissive to their wives.

Population is gonna decline in all of Asia in the coming decades, apart from a few countries like Afghanistan and Iraq. The real problem will be Africa, their population has been exploding and isn't expected to stop anytime soon, the absolute poorest region in the world is going to also become the most populated region.

People are possibly using that second child thing as a buffer now. If they accidentally get pregnant they don't have to worry as much because they sure as hell don't want to risk three if some people can't even afford 2. Also a lot citizens have probably already gotten vasectomies to ensure they didn't have another one as well. The government is stupid for creating this problem in the first place. Learn from their mistakes. This is why history and learning about different countries and their governments is important.

Do you think South East Asians want to have children's?
I agree, people are avoiding having children due to the time, money and effort in raising kids. Also due to technological automation which is making jobs scarce. Countries which have are less labor intensive are likely to have lower populations and lesser children per household. As more people are intended to gain Marginal Utility of returns from the cash and time saved for themselves.

croatiancrow The difference is, Europe deserves all these migrants, especially Germany. I don't think inbetween the 1400s - 1900s, China was taking over literally half of the world, spreading diseases and genocide everywhere they go. However, Europe did it and Germany did this too, so Germany deserves it 100%.

In most first world countries the economy is mostly in the service sector it is not that far fetched for almost all of these jobs to be replaced by AI soon in fact we can do it the only problem is that computers are just not fast enough yet for a lot of the tasks, there are people working full time in bringing AI to banking and other sectors and robotics is growing fast too.

Akmal Ahmed no wonder why white men desperately need Japanese woman when their population is shrinking.
Akmal Ahmed (22 days ago)
Roger Jolly Japan would be the first to be using AI and robots because their population is already shrinking. In fact they're already doing it with their high tech vending machines, automated Japanese restaurants, etc. Our world certainly change but not at the direction we think it did because we still have to be practical. Back to the future 2 prediction was all not practical eventhough we have the technology for most of the stuff already. For example no one predicted 20 years ago that social media would ever be a thing or something like Siri could exist. These are all sci fi stuff in Star Trek.

Most men have pathetically low standards. The only men who are picky are the high-quality ones who can afford to be picky. To women, most men are invisible or don't register as men in their minds. Most men are to women what post-menopausal women are to men.

Andrew Lim Also men die more than women. Men are more likely to be homeless. Men are more likely to be monks. Men are more likely to join the army.If you account all that, the ratio is the same.
Andrew Lim (23 days ago)
Most of the imbalance occurs in rural villages where in some village an entire generation are make up of men. While in the cities, there is less such preference. In fact in some Chinese cities like Shenzhen there are more women and men.
