I think two children is just enough to maintain a balanced population that neither increases nor ...

China's population growth is currently 0.47% which doesn't look like it needs any more babies to remain balanced.

However, my advice was that of caution rather than being opposed to increasing the birth rate. Whatever China does needs to be planned for. You cannot just throw a switch and expect society to accommodate the result if it is decided to either increase or decrease the population by a given percentage. For example, in the UK the nation is feeling the impact of large numbers of immigrants amounting to increases of just 0.5% of the total population. These increases are placing great strains on health, education, housing and income support to name just a few areas. None of this has been budgeted for and those immigrants benefitting have not contributed to the tax pool which has got some of the services close to collapse through lack of planning and control.

(mostly harmless)

Why not "mandate" all Chinese people have 5 babies? or 10? Where does the "mandate" stop. Should China force people to have pets too.

Arf, arf.
