From the NYT:
China announced last week that it would loosen its famous “one-child” policy, enforced since 1980. The world’s most controversial birth-control policy, initially imposed as an emergency measure at the start of the economic reforms of Deng Xiaoping, seems to finally be on its way out, more than a generation later… Wang Feng, a professor of sociology at the University of California, Irvine, and a professor at Fudan University in Shanghai, is the author of “Boundaries and Categories: Rising Inequality in Post-Socialist Urban China.”
