    China needs more children. The latest census shows a steep decline in birth rates. For decades couples were allowed just one child. In 2016 the limit was raised to two. In the future couples can have up to three children. But many – especially in large cities like Shanghai – can’t afford to raise several kids, so there’s skepticism about the new policy.
