Should China introduce third-child policy?

Editor's note: Ren Zeping, chief economist and director of the Evergrande Think Tank, suggested in his article that China should gradually adjust its population policy to allow couples to have three children. According to the article, a poll of 20,000 people conducted in October shows that 60 percent surveyed support a policy to encourage couples to have a third child. Amid a backdrop of shrinking workforce and an aging population, should China introduce a third-child policy? Readers share their opinions.


The trick is to get more money in the pockets of low socioeconomic citizens though because it really won't be ideal if only wealthy Chinese have children. Campaign to reduce poor Chinese people's anxiety about being able to afford more children would help - but they must be able to afford them. More affordable options for working class Chinese are needed and working class Chinese need to feel that a working class life can be a good and happy life.
