From Am-Cham China:
Will population aging plunge China into crisis? Some argue that "crisis" is an apt term: as Wang Feng, a professor of sociology at University of California, Irvine, has written: "The aging of China's population represents a crisis because its arrival is imminent and inevitable, because its ramifications are huge and long-lasting, and because its effects will be hard to reverse." Others are more optimistic, even though China's economic growth will almost inevitably slow as a result of reaching middle-income status.
