One-child policy in China
China introduced the one-child policy in 1979 to control the growth of population. After the policy was introduced, the fertility rate in China fell from 2.63 births per woman in 1980 to 1.61 per woman and about 400 million births have been prevented. I believe that the policy has aided in China's economic growth as companies can make less products to meet the demand of the residents in China, but China may face economic loss as China's population will decrease gradually and less people can help China earn money.
