Will dropping of population restrict China’s development?

As everybody knows, China has the largestpopulation in the world, up to 1.3 billion. Chinese government spared no effortto control the population until last year. It has been lasted for 35 yearssince one-child policy was carried out. During this period, everybody complaintthat the too large population had brought lots of problems to China even to theworld, because everybody got to consume resources. Most of the Chinese peoplesupported this one-child policy made by the Chinese government.

      It is estimated that the population in China will go down to around 0.1billion by the end of 21st century. Generally, Chinese people shouldbe happy about the dropping of the population. We still remember how a largepopulation had great effect on the quality of people’s life. But today, whenthe population is going down, some of the people have an idea that it willbring bad effects to China, especially in economy and that China should keep abigger population in the future.

      Do you think so?

I don't think this is something to worry about.

HailChina!: I don't think this is something to worry about.
The dropping of population is a good thing. If the dropping might cause bad effect on economy, let it be, because we do not have to rely on a life without a good living environment.

The environment does matter, but I doubt the population of over 1 billion would drop to 0.1 billion so quickly. I habitually invite students to see these issues globally, and that way to habitually put comments about China's policies into a globally influential context, as is appropriate for a people who sit in the UN Security Council and who have significant gold reserves. A small % of people are concerned for the world facing water shortages. The global population has been doubling in half the time since the 1700s without any wars making a dent in the population explosion, and that is obviously the direct result of mismanaged banks making huge quantities of money freely available so people too easily live indoors and raise so many children. During the past few centuries, national policies were to increase populations because of fear of war with a neighbouring country. But in the past decade, we hear of military leaders in some countries starting to openly wish, online, that they could address threats to the environment as national threats to safety. However, my friends in philosophy point out that the evidence of natural disasters has not convinced some policy makers around the world. Of course, China is known for making green cities: a step toward sustainable urban development. Imagine a few countries in the world able to re-regulate banks and manage the economy to reduce the population explosion, manage international relations to live without fear of war, and so manage to lead international care for sustaining our environment. Walter Rothschild wrote a book listing extinct species of birds, so that our population explosion crowds many species out of life is known to bankers. I hope survival issues matter to policy makers in any country.
