Think about this for a moment? China has a rule in place that only one or two children per family. Now in traditional chinese families it is up to the younger to take care of the older generations. There aren't really any real welfare or medical system in place that will be able to handle the influx of elder care that will be necessary due to the lack of familial care.
How will it be possible for one or two children to take care of 4 grandparents, 2 parents and possibly any great aunts and uncles who do not have a child? That also goes for if the children die? Who will take care of the elderly? I believe this will be the ultimate downfall for the Chinese within the just one or two generations and if they do not change that policy it will cause the Chinese culture to fail.. pretty sure it will destroy the financial and political ruin of the country.
Now, granted with the US having so many issues, I find this thought intriguing.
Any thoughts on this?
