The One Child Policy Under the Chinese History In the early period after the founding of the People's Republic of China, Chairman Mao believed that a strong nation should have a large population. However, with the development of society, China suffered many problems causing from the large population. The one-child policy was adopted in 1979, in response to the growing population. In the essay “The Little Emperors”, Daniela Deane points out several negative effects of the one-child policy, such as the “millions of abortions, fewer girls and a generation of spoiled children”(65). However, Chinese history has effected people’s mind and habits, so the one-child policy is not the only reason that causes these problems; in other words, the one-child policy effectively reduce the Chinese population.
The Marriage Law may have been the beginning of China’s rapid growth and not one knew it. Women in other countries had been granted right before China passed the Marriage. China had always been behind the powerful countries but this was a big step towards the race of being the dominant country of the world. This law may have seemed minor to other countries that had already granted women their rights but this could have been China’s first step in becoming a powerful country. If this little detail would have been taken more seriously China dominant future could have been predicted more quickly.
Just a few years before this document was written such events as the Massacre at Wounded Knee happened, I believe this was just too fresh in the minds of government officials that they didn’t want to risk having another situation similar to this with the Chinese. There were some very relevant points to be considered such as the Chinese were only contributing their wages to society if it was absolutely necessary for their survival. They would live in the worst of conditions and eat as little as possible to try to save as much as they could to take back to their families in China. This is a very real problem because they start to become leeches, for lack of a better word, and they put none of their wages back into the US economy. This could in turn hurt the economy if too many of the immigrants were living this kind of
Money is what makes the world turn and it’s exactly what china has. China primarily gets its money from its huge exporting business all over the world. Everywhere you see it says made in china it was made and bought from china giving them more money. Not only has this but America owes china a lot of money from are “issues” that we had and they could pull this card anytime they want and ask for their money. This money could be used to fund next generation equipment for their military technology and even for society.
Many people believe that big companies who have entities in under-developed countries actually harm the societies and cultures in those countries and there may be evidence to support that. However, the authors of "Why Globalization is Good", Robyn Meredith and Suzanne Hoppough, try to argue that instead they are actually helping boost a majority of things within their respective economies. Currently and for the past several years, China and India have progressed immensely to become economic super powers. That's great and all, but what about their citizens? How do they fair after the invasion that is foreign interest has risen in the recent past?
Out of Control Introduction Malcolm Potts (2006) labeled the One-Child Policy as painful for a generation, but “oneof the most important social policies ever implemented.” From a removed perspective, he isright. China’s population, although still unwieldy, is on a trajectory to become manageable in thefuture. The nation’s economy is thriving, and China is quickly becoming a world power in manyrespects. However, the One-Child Policy has affected its people in a variety of manners notrepresented in that wide-scoped national picture. Anthropologists Faye Ginsberg and RaynaRapp point out that reproduction is not simply a biological issue.
Because of China’s socialist government and culture, their human resource ethic is commonly undermined and thought to be non-existent. “Since the founding of New China in 1949, and especially since the reform and opening-up policies were introduced in the late 1970s, the Chinese government, upholding the idea of putting people first, has actively implemented the principle of respecting labor, knowledge, talent, and creativity, and has adopted a series of policies and measures to boost employment and develop education, science and technology, culture, public health and social security, striving to create a favorable environment and condition for the people’s all-round development.” (China’s Information Office of the State Council, 2010) It is no secret that China has the largest population of approximately 195 countries in the modern world. Yet, China has a long history of worker abuse and inhumanity. Usually when an individual thinks of the working class in China, they think of modern day slaves that are made to work for low wages and long hours in a hot, uncomfortable, and overcrowded workplace. American companies such as Apple and Wal-Mart are infamous for utilizing foreign sweatshops for manufacturing their products.
In the west wages were declining due to the Chinese immigrants taking jobs. Then the government passed the Chinese Exclusion Act in 1882 to protect the American’s jobs. The act stated no Chinese immigrants would be allowed in unless their parents lived in America. After this act was passed the main concern of the government was urbanization. They government helped out with five challenges of urbanization crime, fire, transportation, sanitation and water.

Possible solutions Cultural Differences—Americans vs. Chinese China: Immediately After 1945 At the end of WWII, in 1945, China emerged as what would appear to be a strong military power, yet was actually economically exhausted and on the verge of their own civil war. The Chinese economy did in fact deteriorate for some time after the War. The Communist party in China was strengthened by the war—both in popularity and as a practical fighting source. Under Mao, China began to prepare for the establishment of a new China.
I have no idea how it will but I hope it won’t because it will be terrible. I agree that the American Jobs Act should be passed right away. In my opinion the American Jobs Act will be a great help for a lot of Americans. In the past few years, I haven’t heard any good news about the economy. What I always heard was the unemployment rate the debt of US to China.
