Why China Ended its One-Child Policy 5
(Promo code is: polymatter)


China has huge ambitions for the 21st century. But it’s demographic problems will be a significant challenge on the way there.

This includes a paid sponsored promotion which had no part in the writing, editing, or production of the rest of the video.


Demographic explanations are inspired in part by several chapters of “The Accidental Superpower” by Peter Zeihan. It’s a great book and although this video is only a small slice (and not the main argument), it’s very interesting and worth reading. He’s the source of a couple specific phrasings like “countries can’t manufacture 18 year olds” which I think help explain the issue well.

In a nutshell:
China: so let's all only have one child cuz we are many
People: ok
China, later: wowowow wait you can't actually do that let's turn back! Have many babies and girls first and foremost.
People: uhm... we actually can't cuz we sterilized.
China: :/

When citizens of a country see children as a liability, that country is likely only a generation or two from financial ruin.

That was the smoothest transition into promoting a sponsor I've ever witnessed.

Next step is to delay retirement age.
That means there are less jobs for young people.
Which means young people have less money.
And then they are even less likely to have children

Not only the problem wasn't solved, but you made young and old people more miserable
