Why the End of China's One-Child Policy Matters

Andy Rothman, Investment Strategist

November 12, 2015
The Chinese government has formally announced the end of its infamous "one-child" policy. This is a very important development, but its political significance far outweighs its economic consequences. In this video update, Andy Rothman, Investment Strategist, explains why, contrary to conventional wisdom, ending the one-child policy is unlikely to change the longer-term trend towards smaller families in China. In Andy’s view, the policy change is all about politics—about getting the government out of Chinese people’s bedrooms.
