    Ironic how short-sighted the one-child policy was considering Chinese are supposed to be decent long term strategists. :lol:

    China has serious challenges in this context and there are no real solutions unless they try to rapidly increase birth rate that they have suppressed for so long. Anyway, the trouble is just starting.

    China's percentage of elderly highest in 2030

    In my opinion China has already reached a critical mass in terms of GDP, this demographic change will not have any major impact on its economics. After all America with its 300 million population holds larger GDP.

    However my curiosity is in the fact that what is right amount of GDP for a population of 1 billion + in a country?

    After all we fall in the similar category. This should help us in setting up of our targets.
