Carlee Allen's curator insight, March 22, 2015 3:23 PM

This article explains how Zhang Yimou was fined because of the government's One Child Policy (he stated that he has 3). China first introduced the policy in the 1970s to drop the birth rate, and it has been present and strict ever since. The policy limits urban parents to 1 child and rural parents to 2 children, but China promises that new laws are coming to relax this policy.

 

I thought this article was very interesting because we learned about this in class, but I didn't know that it was still going on in China today. I think that this policy is crazy! People should be able to control how they live their life and that includes how many children they wish to have.

Carlee Allen's curator insight, March 22, 2015 3:29 PM

This article explains how the number of people over the age of 65 will triple by the time we reach 2050. This is causing a major controversy, while many Japanese people believe that this will cause major problems in the world, many Americans disagree. While Americans may be right, this population change will diversely affect the economy, many more middle-aged people will have to get out of work in order to take care of the rising amount of elderly in the world.

 

I though that it was interesting that just the population of elderly people is said to be tripled. Why just the elderly? Is it because of our improving healthcare?
