China’s one-child policy which is replaced by a two-child policy in October 2015, was imposed by the Chinese Communist Party in 1980, under Deng Xiaoping. Its intention was as a means of controlling runaway population growth. At that time, China was much poorer than it is today. The policy limited most Chinese couples to having only one child. The overall impact of this measure has been profound. According to World Bank, from 1950 to 1980, China’s population grew by 81 percent,  outpacing world population growth, which increased by 76 percent, over those three decades. From 1980 to 2013, however, world population has grown by 61 percent,  while China’s population grew by only 41 percent. Add a comment
