Foresight, China Style

This is what misogyny and overpopulation gets you:

China will be short 30 million women of marrying age in 15 years.

Thanks to the "one-couple, one-child" rule, families have been giving away, aborting, or killing their female children for roughly 30 years.
"China’s population is forecast to peak at 1.5 billion in 2033. That growth, coupled with consequent demographic imbalances, will threaten social stability, the economy, the environment and jobs. By 2020, the report says, the number of men of marriageable age will outnumber women by 30 million. 'The resulting confusion in the social order will become a serious hidden problem influencing social stability.'"
And to make everything more complicated, the population is getting old:
"The number of people of working age - between 15 and 64 - will increase from 860 million in 2000 to 1.01 billion in 2016, according to the report. That is more than the total in all the world’s developed nations In the next 20 years, up to 300 million people will leave their farms and descend on towns and cities to live and work. The report said: 'Our country is currently experiencing the largest human movement and migration in history.'

China is having to cope with becoming the world’s first country to grow old before it grows rich. The number of people over 60 will jump from the current 143 million to 430 million by 2040."
So, maybe China won't be such a threat to the US after all...but probably they will. They'll just be sexually frustrated to boot.

Good luck with all that...
