Too late.

It'll be almost 20 years till it has any effect on the workforce in China and even with terrible healthcare, enough people will still survive the pollution shrouded wasteland to reach old age.

They'll probably wish they hadn't.

If China acts on this within the next 5 years, then problem solved. If not, just look next door at Japan to see what happens in an aged, shrinking society. You walk on the streets of Tokyo, 1/4 of the people around you are 65 or above.

China already has too many old people to support.

Their child policies also mean they don't have enough women of child bearing age.

They just don't have the breeding capacity to provide enough workers to keep paying for the aged.

This means they'll still be working 12 hours a day for a crappy wage when they are 100.

No, China's still got a pretty large population base of younger workers to balance the old folks. Easing the family planning policy will keep it that way in the future.

Glad to see you are now posting from your own understanding of economics instead of stealing someone else's article and pretending you understood it.
