The one child policy was introduced in the 1970s (1979 to the date) because of the massive rise in the population in china due to a 'baby boom' after a serious famine from 1959  - 1961. The successes of the policy should not be underrated. In the context of rising costs and rising aspirations throughout China, there is increasing recognition among the four fifths of the population that is rural of the burden to the family of having a third child, and some are even willing to avoid a second. 20 Moreover, since its inception reductions in Chinese fertility have reduced the country’s (and the world’s) population growth by some 250 million. These reductions in fertility have eased at least some of the pressures on communities, state, and the environment in a country which still carries one fifth of the world’s people.

Since its introduction in 1980, 400 million Chinese less were born through the One Child Policy. "Oriental Tradition" has led to the consequence, that a dangerous surplus of male births exists today of 100:118. In most regions of the world this ratio is 100:105; 70% of Chinese have no pension fund and rely on their children to support them in old age. Tradition has it, that boys are better suited to do this than girls. Statistics and experts say, that by 2020 approx. 30 million Chinese men in marriagable age will not find a woman. Government claims that by that time it will have taken measures to create a balance!
As immediate measure, sex-determination during ultrasound-examinations of pregnant women is strictly prohibited= doctors are not allowed to tell the sex after/during examination. As if this would lead anywhere in the most corrupt society of this world!
It will be interested to see if Chinese men will - by 2020 - be desperate enough to reverse prevailing tradition - and pay dowry to the family of the bride, instead of sitting at the receiving end of it!

Actually it wasn't established in 1980, it was established in 1979. China's one child policy was established by Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping in 1979 to limit communist China's population growth.

It will be interesting to see if "Oriental Tradition" will change until 2020, and why not? No country has undergone more drastic changes faster in the last 60 years – and especially in the last 20 years, than this huge country, leaving the rest of the world in awe!

Well, Couragem2 seems to be illiterate - or almost: Or what do you think the words "since it's introduction" means? So I spell it out in simpler words: When it started, when it began, when this policy was introduced. Answer: It was introduced in 1980. The consequeces are also given - and this is what was asked for. If you are not a native English speaker and do not understand enough- better take some more lessons befor you critisize others!
