China – The One Child Policy.

November 22nd, 2013

Gao Wen Hong, 41, is CEO of a cosmetics company. Her husband, Wang Wei, also 41, is the director. They have one daughter, Wang YingChen, 7 who is top of the class at her primary school which has the best results in Beijing. Wen Hong says she prefers to have only one child so she can put all her resources into her.

Its over thirty years (1978) since the Mao’s Chinese government brought in the One Child Policy in a bid to control the world’s biggest, growing population. It has been successful, in controlling growth, but has led to other problems. E.G. a gender in-balance with a projected 30 million to many boys babies; Labour shortages and a lack of care for the elderly.
