 Media: Stimulation policies are useless for families who do not want to have children, but should pay more attention to population quality


From the data alone, the population was still growing last year, with 15.23 million births and 9.93 million deaths. The natural growth rate of the population was 3.81%. The mortality rate is not high because of the increase in average life expectancy and the relatively low proportion of the elderly in the age structure of the population. But if people born in the 1950s and 1960s with a large proportion of the population enter the age of 80, the death climax will come. At the same time, the only child will continue to enter the reproductive age, the number of women of reproductive age will decline, and the number of new-born population will decline.

Of course, some families have reduced their desire to have children for economic reasons, so appropriate fertility stimulus policies can play a role, such as granting birth allowances, increasing nurseries and kindergartens, and so on. This may be unfair to low-fertility families, but in the long run, these people will assume the responsibility of providing for the aged and taxing of the whole society when they grow up, and their initial investment will be doubled, which will undoubtedly be a positive income for the whole society.

But it should be realized that any stimulus will not work for families who do not want to have children. As personal self-awareness continues to grow, one-child or even childless families may increase.

At present, there is a trend of thought that population reduction will not only cause the lack of labor force, but also cause the lack of purchasing power, which will have a negative impact on economic growth. Labor is indeed important, but it is not necessarily right to emphasize population size unilaterally. Li Tie, former director of the National Development and Reform Commissions Urban and Small Town Center, believes that the population problem should be paid more attention to quality. He believes that although India has a large population, its education level is not high and there is not much competitive advantage.

In the past, China has taken a line of universal education, and has done a good job. After the labor dividend, there is a wave of engineer dividends. In the future, with the increase of the number of educated people and the accumulation of knowledge, senior talents will be born in batches to push the Chinese economy forward. In fact, China has made breakthroughs in science and technology in recent years. On the other hand, China also has a large working-age population, with 900 million people aged 16 to 59, accounting for 64.3% of the total population. The national labor dividend is still there, and 8 million college graduates each year continue to promote industrial upgrading. Chinas population base is huge, and there will be a long transition period. Even if the total population decreases, there will be the worlds highest quality labor force, as well as the worlds most industrious entrepreneurs and the progressive white-collar class. Population reduction will certainly affect the economy, but to cope properly will become the driving force of industrial upgrading, so that people live a more prosperous and healthy life. Concerned about population reduction, we can introduce policies to encourage fertility, so that fertility can become a self-conscious action of Chinese individuals.
