內容簡介


2015年10月,中國宣布終結長達35年的一胎化政策,全面開放可生兩胎。然而,在經濟成長減緩的當前,願意生第二胎的人口卻不如預期。《華爾街日報》記者長期追蹤該政策的衝擊,看到有如反烏托邦的現實社會:未經認可的第二個孩子被忽略、村裡充滿找不到伴侶的單身男子,與版圖跨越全球的非法領養市場。當家庭計畫走向極端,可能終將阻礙經濟成長。

An intimate investigation of the world’s largest experiment in social engineering, revealing how China became what it is today, where it’s inevitably headed, and the implications for the rest of the world

China adopted its one-child policy in 1979, exercising unprecedented control over the reproductive habits of more than one billion people. China now seems poised to overtake the United States as the world’s largest economy, but this law may be its undoing. The Soviet Union collapsed because of its wrongheaded attempt to engineer the market. What will come of China’s attempt to engineer its population? 
 
Mei Fong reveals the true human impact of government-mandated family planning, traveling across China to meet the people who live with its consequences. Their stories reveal a dystopian reality: unauthorized second children ignored by the state, only children supporting aging parents and grandparents on their own, villages teeming with ineligible bachelors. This demographic imbalance, Fong argues, will lead to further economic and societal turmoil in the years to come. 
 
Fong has spent over a decade documenting the repercussions of the one-child policy on every sector of Chinese society. She offers a nuanced and candid account of government planning gone awry.
