Zeihan also makes the point that very large numbers of Chinese moved from farm to city in a short time, and that a small city apartment makes having a large family extremely stressful. On a farm, children can be a source of free labor; in the city they are purely an expense. That ties in with what I have read about the high levels of unemployment among young Chinese, especially among those who have no more than a high school education.
