China’s Three Child Policy and What It Means for Demographic Change

What does China’s newly announced three-child policy tell us about China’s changing demographics? What have been the economic and societal consequences of China’s historical efforts to control births? How does this policy fit into a context of global demographic change, and what are the political implications? 

Wang Feng, Professor of Sociology at University of California, Irvine, and author of a recent New York Times Op-Ed talks to RBI Director John Torpey about global demographic changes across China and the world, and what can we expect in the future from today’s changing global demographic trends.
