    i think their current policy already has fixed it, its just a generational thing and will decrease in stages .. moving like that though theres a risk of decreasing it too much and the west has run into that already, with not enough babies being born to support an economy with alot of aging people in it in the upcoming decades .. hence theyre trying to import refugees from everywhere .. has alot to do with it .. sure does ,, ...

    they are falling into a capitalist trap..if population (e.g customers) drop, their economy drops. They also need new workers to replace aging/retiring/dead ones. Their problem is more how to INCREASE, not decrease population

    Seriously, that's the best thing they could do is to do nothing.

    the problem China has is not only an overpopulation a huge imbalance in the ratio of males to females. Because of the desire to have male children to inherit combined with the fact that thanks to the overpopulation they're limited to only one child (save for special situations), they would often find a way to make a female child disappear. Sometimes through benevolent means such as adoption overseas, other times by just leaving them out in the cold.

    So as a result, there are about 120 males per every 100 females.

    This makes it harder and harder for young men to find a wife and start their own families. a generation or two the death rate will likely exceed the birth rate and finally bring the population to sustainable levels. Then all they would have to do is to not do that again and try to maintain the healthy ratio of male to female.

    Otherwise it'll happen again and again.

    They've already passed a law that a couple can have only one child.

    On January 1, 2016, China eliminated the one-child policy. Couples can now have two children. This seems to be working.
