The country’s economic energy, powered by youth since the 1980s, is on the line as birth rates fall to record lows and its population is about to age the fastest in the world. The programme Insight explores whether the one-child family is as good as it gets for China.
Zhang Rui and her husband, Qiang Zihe, are an anomaly among their friends in Beijing. The couple, in their late 30s, have two children and want to have a third.
“We like children. We rather enjoy raising (them) and watching them grow,” said Zhang, 38. “Having siblings will give them more companionship. I feel they can support and look after each other.”
But her friends find it “unbelievable” that she has two children, let alone three.
After all, Zhang and her peers were brought up to value the one-child family as the perfect model, thanks to the country’s strictures against having more children, which began in the late 1970s.
Things have changed since 2016, when China adopted a two-child limit because the decline in birth rates was too steep, and its population was ageing. Then in May, it began encouraging couples to have three or more children.
The question remains, however, about whether it may be too late — and the programme Insight examines the consequences of China’s falling fertility rate and what it might take to change, if at all, the mindset of the Chinese.

It may already too late, especially with the global eugenics program underway.
A society that doesn’t love human life will not welcome children.
Further PROOF that governments cannot manage anything properly!!!
China doesnt care about life, they will just quietly exterminate the oldest 10% of their population. Problem solved.
In that way, what’s to say that wasnt an intentional side affect for releasing the Wuflu?
Bull. Population in China is still rising til 2030 (projected). If they start having more children before then it never will decline. Maybe that’s why they were trying to create deadly respiratory diseases.
Simple. The Chinese will have to start “baby factories” and manufacture babies in massive numbers because their citizens are no longer willing to have babies. Russia will have to do the same. Both are authorization states with severe depopulation problems so I wouldn’t be surprised if they attempt to address it in the next generation or so.
Rochelle Started offering rewards and doing various things maybe it’s decade ago. But it’s very hard to restart these kind of things.
By the way, the United States and Europe aren’t very far behind. Look at their By the way, the United States and Europe aren’t very far behind. Look at their Fertility rates. And thanks to United States ngos Mexico’s birthrate is down a lot. It’s dropped even in Muslim countries.
We have immigration. No one is moving to China and Russia. That’s the difference.
