Implications of China’s One-Child Policy for The United States

In today’s Wall Street Journal, is a piece by Nicholas Eberstadt entitled, “China’s One-Child Mistake” (subscription required).

Adapted from his speech at the World Economic Forum earlier this month in Dalian, China, Eberstadt urges China to abandon its “coercive population control” program immediately for “the nation’s long-term economic outlook.” He points out a number of negative social and economic consequences of the program, including “the increasingly extreme imbalance between baby boys and baby girls.”

The fall in the birth rate in the US, or sex selective abortion, could have the same consequences in the US.
