In a report by DW news, Feng Wang, professor of sociology at University of California,
Irvine, said that the one-child policy was made possible "by the particular political
context and political institutions in China." More importantly, he pointed out that
the enforcement of the policy allowed most Chinese families to spend less on children
per capita, which helped with savings, investment and economic growth. Even, as families
invested more on the only child's education, it helped to nurture the most educated
generation in Chinese history, the expert said.
