For John, BLUF: China is behind the population curve and will be losing people toward the end of the Century, not that either of us will be around. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From the web presence Real Clear World, part of Real Clear Politics, we have an article by Mr Joseph Chamie, "Easing China's One-Child Policy Won't Stop Demographic Decline".
In an attempt to mitigate a near-certain demographic future of rapid aging, shrinking labor force and critical gender imbalance, the Chinese government has adjusted its one-child policy.China has 115 male births per 100 female births and the female fertility rate is 1.6. Those are not replacement level figures and means a lot of males without brides. Estimates are up to 25 million males without women. That is a lot of males getting into trouble.
Isn't demography destiny?
