No because LOL one child policy. Would literally cause riots that made vietnam draft protest look sane since the parents and grand parents would all be out rioting if they had 1 child (majority of city folk).
Depends on a few things, including if the arms deal to replace the ROC navy frigates go through. Still unlikely since PLAN is laughably bad compared to a the russian navy
The best move for the PLA is to play aggressively in the next 50 years. The best move for the US is to not to play at all since demographics will just collapse the state in on itself.
>spook agency drafting
It won't work, since most single children parent would rather be executed than have their kids sent. Plus, manpower isn't the issue of the PLA. The issue is having educated manpower AND logistics (mainly the latter).
Although, the NPC in 2013+ has been offering some pretty decent bonuses (can you call it that? I think privileges is more appropriate) for overseas Chinese (and their descendants) to return to China. I think the current offer is if you have college degree is green card chinese green cards are absurdly rare, only like 3000 before 2013, and around 10,000 in 2016?
+ Citizenship in 10 (or 5/15, its still on the NPC agenda iirc) years, Hukou of your choice or reassigning your hukou if citizen, first in line in vehicle drawings, and basically guaranteed job if you've got a graduate degree. That being said, if you're a foreigner good luck getting Tibet/Xinjiang access still.
That being said, they've been cracking down hard on what they call "emigration fraud".For example, you get an child born in the US (or any other country), and they go back to china, grow up in china, and then leave for us at college since that country has birthright citizenship. Basically, if you've stayed in China for 6+ months as a foreigner in your childhood, you'd better come up with a damn good reason or else they will lock you in a room and force you to relinquish either the chinese or US citizenship and pay restitution. Of course, it is "voluntary" which one you choose guess which one gets relinquished usually?
That's a low estimate. It's more like around 10k-15k (relatively speaking if we compare to burgers in the US), since you gotta go to private school, and then after school "optional" classes, and then also tutoring.
If you wonder how that works, in China schools do not teach basic curriculum , and the "better" schools don't teach advanced curriculum . They only go through questions of those curriculum and they teach "optional" stuff to gain a competitive edge. You go to private tutoring/ and optional classes for that.
The other reason there's no children being born is because since Mao brought into the actual muh gender equality meme, Chinese women more or less have the same rights This is hilarious because the police consider domestic violence to be a "family issue" and don't intervene, so you'll see husbands beating wives in the open, wives beating ae hnd dragging mistresses out in the open, and vice versa
and are expected to perform the same responsibilities as men unlike the US. That being said, who wants to have children if you're expected to perform equivalent to a male?
I should also mention, the female population after gen z (in cities at least) act more like men. Mainly because gender roles got inverted since there are so many men lol. If you go to a current year school in Beijing, you see the women getting into fistfights while the men cry in a corner of their desk.
Then again, in China (poor) men will literally marry retarded women since there's such a dearth of them. The saying is "No car, no (college) education, no house, no (city) hukou, no date".
I think that was mainly the baby boomer generation. Mainly because Mao said muh equality, sent them to work in the fields, and a lot of the women ended up infertile up north due to the freezing cold water or something?
Modern day city women, they are infertile mainly because they eat nothing takeout or just work stress.I remember a case discussion in a hospital (In Chinese ofc) where a 23yr old female ate so much takeout (I think for every meal since she was 15) her blood was basically filled with takeout grease and she basically had sepsis and multiple organ failure. I'm a bit busy today but I'll see if I can't dredge the PDF up.
My mother had some of the stress induced infertility for a while. In China workday is 6 days a week, and overtime is basically required like Japan. My mother pulled 60 hr weeks and also needed 2 hours of commute time. I know currently it's even worse. Huawei's requirement for hiring an engineer is/was something along these lines (last checked 2014).
