With the amount of people born everyday in the world will Chinas one child policy ever be viewed as good forward thinking in the west?

I was reading a report on demographics the other day. It indicated that China will have an acute labor shortage within the next few decades as the population grows older. This also means a bigger stress on those kids who have to take care of their grandparents. Less labor usually means higher wages to attract people. This increase in wages will affect trade because products in other Asian countries will become more competitive than products from China. Beijing may not be able to sustain it's economic growth as a result of the one child policy. They have finally learned that rich people usually will not have more than one child. The very people who can afford to have more than one child don't want more children.

All it has done is create millions of self-centered, narscissistic little brats that think the world owes them a favour.....or for the poor ones, forced them to be the only means of support for their parents, creating a giant burden.
The west already has a lower birth rate than China (not counting Latino Catholics).

Ha! Not until the Pope approves birth control. There's too many catholics running around that would never allow a one child policy.

Here's a recent news story and a map about this from NPR.

http://www.npr.org/blogs/money/2011/11/03/141943008/when-governments-pay-people-to-have-babies

And here's a map, country by country, explaining birth rate, population, whether the country is encouraging or discouraging babies and comparing it to GDP.

A:Most of the companies still use traditional methods of hiring such as, interviews, resume reviews, background screening, etc. HR professionals still follow the several, decades old pattern of personality assessments but in a quicker and efficient way, which will yield accurate results. Employee assessments tools are extremely beneficial in realizing the results are quantifiable and go a long way in ascertaining the work style and behavioral attributes of potential employees before they set foot into your company. In-fact they take out the guesswork involved in recruiting the employees who can work together.  The major benefit of the assessment tools is not confined to the hiring process, but also used as an effective tool of employee retention. The assessment tool will identify the gap between employee work style and job needs. They provide you a road map for recruitment of prospective employees and the further development of essential traits such as, leadership ability, individual development, team communications and conflict resolution. It will also help the employees to make better, satisfying and successful career choices. Nowadays more and more organizations are integrating personality assessments with skill tests, leadership evaluations, 360-degree assessment, evaluation and feedback, disc personality profile and behavioral assessment. -- LoganMountgarre
