China has the most elderly workforce in the nation and their one child law will eventually be their downfall when they will not have enough productive people in their workforce.
Interesting. In this country, we have many who do not want social funding of care for elderly, which is done primarily through Medicaid. (Remember that this is the vast majority of Medicaid expenditures.) And we also have an aging population with a smaller number coming behind to care for their parents, grandparents, greatgrandparents. This sounds like a government-authorized private sector solution that could benefit the college funds of many lawyers' kids. I hope we come up with some better alternatives soon.
Yes, America and especially Western Europe are undergoing similar woes because of too many families of one or two children or none, not to mention abortion. But our society in general appears more concerned with their own quality of life than any other related concerns. I mean face it, the best thing any parent can give their son or daughter is another brother or sister, not a car or an Xbox or an I-phone.
