### X-Child Policy

Let X be 1.

1-Child Policy may be weird (no offense), but I want to discuss about it. They have it in China. Well, I don't think there should be a one-child policy. If that's the case, well, their fertility rate is 1.58, and since it's below 2.10 (Normal Rate), why have it anyway? Here are some of the pros and cons (advantages and disadvantages):

Pros: Will lessen population growth
Cons: What if the president is a second child, third child, etc?

Now, let X be 2.

Not much weird, but it has been planned in the Philippines! Well, at least it's okay to implement it (our fertility rate is 3.1), just 1 above the normal rate. But, what's more weird (no offense) is what Hong Kong has! Imagine a fertility rate of 1.04, should there be even one?

I will have a name change soon. By the way, welcome to the Philippines, Pope Francis!

Hi;

I would say they should stop population growth completely. 0 children, in about 100 years everything will be fine.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

So is stopping population growth.

Why not just ban any fancy cars, place high taxes on rich persons etc?

### Re: X-Child Policy

Hmm, I think I have to manipulate my population census. It's crazy to get so much by 2100! (My census reached 11-15 billion there ) So, I will change the lower by year rate to 1.5% from 1%. I'll try.

The future population. Look at the topic named "Future Population (End of the World in 3136?)"

### Re: X-Child Policy

I've an idea for estimating the population.

1. Develop a highly stinking apple juice.
2. Package it in packets which has your email on it.
3. Use aircrafts from the US Defense to drop these packets everywhere around.
4. The number of complain emails you get is the population of the eartg.

I would say it would be less than the population of the earth.

Alternate method: do not package the appld juice just spill it.

I think 1.79 children per family is best.
