This Wednesday, the ’17s discussed China’s change in its one child policy. We talked about why China is making this change and whether it is good or bad. We concluded that this policy change was made so that the Communist party, especially President Xi Jinping, could gain some domestic favor. We also feel that allowing two children is good for China in the long term, but will have no effect on the current economic downturn.
Here are the links to the two articles we read and a video we watched:
