From the LA Times:
"Symbolically, it is a turning point, but I don't think the numbers will be that large," said Wang Feng, a demographer who teaches at UC Irvine and Shanghai's Fudan University. Wang expects the 16 million annual births to increase by 1 million to 2 million. He bases his estimates on pilot programs in Shanghai and nearby Jiangsu province, which found that in cases of couples permitted to have second children, no more than half choose to do so.
