When the American Congress passed these laws to curb Chinese immigration, the Chinese population in decreased from over 140,000 to 75,000. The Chinese family life became difficult, with husbands working in the Unites States, while wives and children stayed in China. Most Chinese Americans linked the divided and weakened China to the unfair treatment of Chinese people in America. The Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 was the first immigration law on the basis of race in American history. It set a precedent that unfair treatment of another race was alright in America.
Therefore, from the point of view of international standards, they lived in absolute poverty. Net income of 1.5 million to 3 million yuan in 1990, had about 3.5% of the peasants, but in 1995, almost 37%, in 2000 - 42.8%, in 2003 - 40.7%. In accordance with the Chinese criterion of "absolute poverty", total poor population decreased to nearly 24 million people. Its share in the total population has declined over the 20 years from 14.8% to 2.5%, or more than 100 million people. According to the same criterion, the UN, the number of poor people in China exceeds 200 million people.
Now with booming economies both made a dramatic change. China opened up its economy and took the steps necessary before India. This has caused China to be a step ahead of India by thirteen years in the development as a nation and this is still seen today. China was destroyed as a nation by communism in a thirty-year period with his “Great Leap Forward” program. Mao caused a thirty-year famine because of the decrease in agriculture when farmers were forced to give up land.
In 1949 Mao Zedong the ruling communist leader of China at the time called for couples to have more children because China was very poor at the time and thought it might bring more money to the government. In 1979 China started the one child policy to lower the population.
Chapter 4. Levitt and Dubner argue that abortion was a main cause in reducing crime in the late 20th century compared to common conceptions. The chapter opens up by mentioning the Communist dictator of Romania, Nicolae Ceausescu, who outlawed abortion within the first few years of his reign while also banning contraception. The children born in the first years of the abortion ban scored lower in schools, had less career success, and more were prone to commit crimes than those born right before. One must note that both of these generations grew up under Ceausescu's rule.
Because of the excessive objectives that had to be reached the government limited production of the consumer’s goods. This lead to famine, and housing, clothing, and other necessities shortages. Document 3 shows that coal production increased by 110 million metric tons in ten years from 1928 to 1938, during the two Five-Year Plans. However, Document 5 shows how drastically livestock decreased during the two Five-Year Plans. In ten years the livestock population decreased by 16 million.
The idea of having 2 well educated children was made out to be the more favorable option, over having multiple children. Millions of people submitted themselves for voluntary sterilization to prevent themselves from having more than 2 children or any children at all during this period of population control. The policy was taken very seriously by the country, as approximately 928,000 South Koreans were sterilized in the one year period between 1983 to
The population law in China is a law invented in the late 1970s by the government in china. To begin with there was only a one child policy where a soon to be mother could only have one baby. If the mother were to be pregnant with twins or triplets they would be aborted immediately. A couple of years later announced that if you were the only sibling in your family you were able to have two children.This law has created less population decreasing traffic on roads having plenty of space and homes for families. But it has also created ghost cities a ghost city is a city where barely anyone lives in and is very hard to make a living there for lack of customers.
As homelessness becomes a normalcy in the United States, there is less attention focused on the issue of child and family homelessness. As more families fall into financial hardships, affordable housing has become less attainable. Between 1981 and 1986, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development was forced to reduce their budget from $33 billion to less than $10 billion. This represented an extreme decrease in the building and maintenance of housing, imposing more difficulties on hopeful individuals in need of affordable housing. In Family Homelessness: Where Are We Now?” Roy Grant, Senior Director, Research Children's Health Fund Medical Affairs and Gracy Delaney, Chief Medical Officer at Children's Health Fund among other
Introduction: China is the second largest country by land area, covering approximately 9.6 million square kilometers. In addition, it is the world's most populous country with a population of over 1.38 billion. Moreover, because of this large number of population, china faces serious social and economic problems. Overly populated regions lead to degradation of land and recourses, pollution, and bad living conditions. The Chinese government has tried to find a solution to the problem of increasing population.
However, humans have achieved a level that was never previously before known. Some countries have been able to reduce a high population without the One Child Policy (Doc B). However, even though these countries have been able to drop their population, these countries still have an extremely high poverty rate. In China the amount of people in poverty is 13.1%. Even though this is a high poverty rate the poverty line in South Korea is 15% (World Bank).
In the fifty years since Medicare has been passed, the rate of poverty in geriatrics has steadily decreased as the rate of poverty in those from 18-64 steadily increases. The data, as reported by the Bureau of Census in 2012, is in agreement with the trend stated above. According to the study, roughly 9.1% of geriatrics live in poverty, whereas 21.8% of 18-64 year olds live in poverty (2012 census figure 5). In the past five decades, the rate of poverty in those 65+ has decreased a massive 26.1%. The favorable consequences of Medicare are undeniable and amidst the concern for the elderly, there was a growing awareness regarding civil rights issues of the
