One Child Policy Officially Ended

China's controversial has officially ended finally. Still it is unlikely to see its birthrate, which has already fallen dramatically like other developed East Asian countries, to significantly rebound. Its repercussion in population aging will become apparent in the coming decades.

One Child Policy

This brings me back to the wonderful novel 《蛙》 Frog by Nobel Laureates Mo Yan. It seems the highly political one child policy is an unlikely topic for a novel. But Mo Yan has personify the policy and threaded it into everybody's life. The story is surprising riveting and very tragic. It presents a long struggle of the bureaucracy and the people over one of the most important element of life, the offspring. It leads to the surrealism ending where many of the ideas are reversed in present day setting.

So long one child policy.
