    A second point I want to add is due to the high cost of raising children, a lot of people are reluctant to have children. That’s why relaxing the policy to 2 children per family is not having much effect. China needs to improve its severe inequality in resources distribution and provide better support for child care to be able to start turning the problem around. But both of those issues will also take years to solve. If inequality is not addressed and welfare cannot improve, we might have a nation with a dwindling young population who in turn is having even less children per household than the previous generation.

    One thing I want to point out is China has a national pension system. So after you retire your income does not fall to zero. In some cases the pension is even not much lower than your income before retirement, which is why a lot of aging Chinese workers (especially in public sector) hope to retire as soon as possible. However, this can make the situation worse in the future because a small population of workers will need to provide for a large population of retirees.

    As someone born in China I'll say this is actually common knowledge for Chinese people, especially the ones from poorer regions which have been losing people at an ever increasing rate. But a lot of people don't realize or understand how bad this problem can become yet.

    Japan may be the future of all developed countries, if not the best future. The slow, overmatured aging economy that has not collapsed. Looks like none of any countries has found the prescription to this demography issue as the most common contributor is development itself. Last time that we "solved" the issue was WWII

    The 1.5 ish children is somehow believable as the one child policy was actually "only applied" to han chinese (i.e. minority got exemptions) and it wasn't also fully implemented in rural areas due to the difficulties. So that "loophole" actually saved them now but 1.5 isn't looking good as well

    Do you think it's possible the PRC will start a euthanization program? That is one way to solve the "too many retired people" issue. And sadly, I do not think it is beyond the realm of possibility for this government. They have gone to extreme lengths in the past to hide their mistakes and weaknesses. But the Chinese honor their elders much more so than their Western counterparts. Well, here's hoping that never happens.

    At 11:28 the presenter of the video says the retirement will happen to everyone at the same time (at once), but since the productive group is at the age range of 30s to 40s they also do not retire at the same time (a person who's today 30 years old will retire way later than a person who is today 49 years old).

    Chinas whole economy is a house of cards. Remember when Xi thought he could make the Yuan a global reserve currency? Billions of dollars flooded out of the country lol he had to institute new capital controls and that was the end of the Yuan being a global currency. Its just such a mess over there.

    Countries like Japan and China are so homogeneous in their make up, the concept of large numbers of people from other continents moving there is utterly unfathomable to them and likely abhorrent to their population and political leaders. However, the western hemisphere is built on this notion, so while birth rates in the USA may net be replacement rates, toss in young people emigrating here (legally and otherwise), it paints a different picture. Seems to be happening in Europe too, but at a slower rate. Put another way, China, Japan, etc. have never had and likely never will have political arguments regarding what to do about the constant inflow of illegal immigrants, because other than North Koreans, no one is breaking down the doors to get into those countries. I would bet real money that in 50 years, the PRC will have collapsed into one major country and a few smaller ones, Japan will have gone very high tech to automate the elder care process, while the western hemisphere will be similar to what it is today, with the USA being somewhat more dulce y leche - sorry black Americans, other than some cities, your political power is on the wane.

      @Shan Su it's fun watching how many people wave around robotics as a magic wand without realising how much time, investment and skilled labour go into it. There aren't many people capable of doing it, it's something that's in demand globally and they'll follow the money. (A very large part of my job is automation) - China is not an attractive place for people like me to work. Anyway, unless you've got an escape, as someone living in the PRC who will become elderly, you should worry about that. I also enjoy how you didn't answer my questions and basically offered up vague hope.

      I would say there could be some problems with importing foreign workforce for China: 1) The language barrier: Mandarin is much harder to learn, especially when it has four tones, compared to English or even Japanese. 2) Job wages: Compared to other countries, from my research, China's wages are much lower (but can depend on job). 3) Benefits: Incentives for moving to China are quite low (monetary, security, protection, etc.) 4) Cultural differences: China's government and enforcement units have a record of forcing their cultural policies on those that do not share their beliefs, which makes it less appealing for a foreign workforce to move there and adapt (especially when they come from a more liberal country, with certain freedoms guaranteed).

      @Robert Bray you western countries are still doing well now, but we don't know how the world will move in the future. I never said China offers as much as jobs for immigrants now as we have enough workforce. If the demographic decrease becomes severe, call for foreign workforce is one of the choices, otherwise we could also expand the use of robotics. Anyway, we all know that too much people on the Earth is not good for the planet and human beings, and I'm sure that the gvmnt is smart enough to offer a good solution for that problem. As an individual I don't really worry about that.

    Well, obviously China will now just implement an enforced 2-child policy. You MUST have 2 children, or you pay a fine. Maybe you will even be forcibly married and fertilised to make you have children. Isn't so different from forced sterilisation when they had a 1 child policy.

      @Marka Ragnos hmm, I was more meaning it's not so different in terms of human reproductive rights violations, but ok. Actually I think it's almost equally hard to enforce a 1 child policy. You don't just visit the village once; you have to visit at least once every 9 months to make sure they don't ever get pregnant again after their allotted kid, until the woman is no longer fertile. Probably every 6 months to be safe. That's 60 visits over a lifetime. So for a 2 child policy you simply visit once every 6 months, like you did before, and make sure they are pregnant or have their kid. If they don't then they get fertilised again or pay a fine. Once the kid is born they will have an identity card so you can keep track of it. Of course you will always get people cheating the system, just like those hidden kids in the 1 child policy, but you just make them pay money to not have kids, similar to how they had to pay money to have a second kid. Not that I am advocating this of course, it sounds like a hideous and absurdly controlling thing to do.

    I lived in Asia for 2 years. Those countries are fiercely nationalistic and one race societies, not open to immigration. That coupled with the insufficient replacement birth rate doom these countries to diminish as the populous ages and falls off. America is a melting pot taking in a multitude of immigrants to change the dynamics significantly.

    Don't worry, China will find its way out as Chinese culture is a resilient one. With less young supporting more senior economically, the senior will shrink their demands to the barebone and some senior will even extend their work life to the age of 65. In addtion, with less population, there will be less demand for public services, therefore the government will cut down on its size and resource demand.

    The USA is not in risk for similar fall bc we can just import more people when needed. This means that we experience the benefits of having low fertility with the added benefits of managing our demographics much easier than other countries. However, I believe our biggest fall is going to be our government which were the ones who originally laid the groundwork for the “freedom” culture which is so enticing to immigrants. There’s a lot more at play but there’s no denying how divisive our politics have become in an already demographically stressed society.

    Something he mentioned but didn't go into further details about is the culture among Chinese women. They just don't want to have kids anymore. They mostly want kids to fulfill obligations to their family but not necessarily for themselves. Having kids is, for most women in china is a familial obligation, not the byproduct of a happy marriage. A shocking amount of Chinese citizens come from broken homes from some kind of divorce or domestic abuse. So after they witness such events in their childhood, they lose a lot of interest in having a child. Even people who have good childhoods still remember their parent's struggle of raising a family, so many of the working class generations now find having a child a bit too much of a hassle and would rather save money and buy houses they don't need.

    A young productive workforce is good for the economy BUT IT MUST BE GIVEN A CHANCE TO PROCREATE ITSELF AS IT GROWS OLD and thus a young productive workforce is only good for the economy BECAUSE it is not only it is literate, highly educated, very intelligent, very healthy, very smart, very creative and inventive and innovative, and has TONS OF WISDOM AND EXPERIENCES but it is ONLY COMPLETELY GOOD FOR THE ECONOMY PERMANENTLY IF IT IS PRO-NATALISTIC, PRO-TRADITIONAL FAMILY, PRO-CHILDREN. A nation without babies and children is a nation without a future which is a direct quote from Harry Dent who is an economist-demographer. nllike.info/baby/video/ap2YyqHRbmidmag

    Good thinking, but you missed the most important point. The scalability of productivity. Chinese people are 99% lemmings and fully controlled, motivated and coordinated by the State. Retirement will never be an issue in china. China is fully aware of this.

      @Robert Bray which again means italians go extinct or italy gets wiped out by other cultures. Chinese are not italians by ethnicity or culture neither are africans or polish people. Why do you hate italians so much? Why do you want them colonized by outsiders

    Thank you for warming my heart with this video. My friend lost most of his money that he invested in a restaurant that was shut down during the pandemic...along with the rest of the economy...by my criminal Liberal government. Knowing that China will pay dearly...one way or another...really makes me joyful.

    The issue that always gets overlooked when discussing this issue, is that the demography issue is pretty a universal issue for developed countries, and the countries with high birthrates are unlikely to challenge the dominance of existing powers because they are mostly failed states.

      @J. O'Brien the ones that don't want them have a very self inflicted problem. The ones that do want them will figure out how to attract them. Even if there's a few bumps along the way.

      @Robert Bray true which will leave them in dominant positions over undeveloped countries. But there will be the issue of which ones can attract immigrants and many don't want immigrants.

    Demography problems can be partially ameliorated by immigration which is the favoured solution taken by western nations. If you pluck highly educated young people from other (mostly poorer) countries, you can artificially inflate the productive age group without needing to carry the baby costs yourself. Of course your country needs to be attractive to foreigners (and a rapidly rising China will soon if not already tick that box for many) and your current citizens need to be open to the idea of having foreign groups become an ever larger presence. That second one is a real problem. I'm of Chinese descent living in the West and I can't think of one Asian culture that's not inherently racist. The Malays basically write laws repressing their Chinese ethnic citizens. The Japanese would rather crumble economically than import a tide of ready and willing Filipinos to fill their skills shortages. I'm pretty sure my Chinese parents would boycott my wedding if I told them I wanted to marry a brown or black woman. I support China's economic rise and I can see immigration as a major way of fixing their demography problem but I can't see the stability obsessed government choosing that option.
