This paper discusses China's one child policy. It analyzes the history of the policy, as well as the reasons behind it and its consequences for the people of China and China as a country. The paper focuses on the negative results of this policy, in terms of gender imbalance and the possible result of self-centered individuals.

From the Paper:

"Another problem which started with the one child policy was that people started to abandon their children. If parents who wished to have a boy had a girl instead, they would abandon the baby child and then try again to have a boy. To parents boys are more important because they see them as support in old age. They want the boy to grow up and take care of them. Girls normally cannot do this and when married, they go to live with their husbands and take care of his parents. Hence such abandonment cases have also been on the rise. Before the one child policy was in effect people used to abandon their children and even kill them due to poverty. The same is happening now which shows that the Chinese government has failed to address to this problem."
