BLOG: How should we fix China?

  1. Based on your knowledge of the changes in demographics in a country's population (See Demographic Transition), explain where China is currently positioned in its transition.
  2. Explain the changes in environmental policy as countries transition through their demographic evolution.
  3. Provide you opinion on whether it would be better for its environmental status to let China proceed through its demographic transition or should they intervene and enact more stringent environmental laws now?  In other words, do they act now or risk waiting until its possibly too late to recover? Provide some evidence from an on-line source that supports your opinion.
  4. There are a few articles at right which will give you a feel for the problems in China today. 
  5. You may add you comments below.
