Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “How China’s ageing population may topple its economic ambitions | Counting the Cost” – below is their description.
China’s status as the factory of the world is under threat. Not from the United States, which is looking at ways to slow its economic dominance, but from its own falling birth rate.
Fewer babies mean fewer workers to power factories and economic growth.
China will become the world’s biggest economy but holding onto that position may be a challenge.
We talk to Dr Lauren Johnston, research associate at SOAS China Institute, about China’s demographic challenges.
And Emily Kreps, global director of capital markets at not-for-profit CDP, tells us why financial institutions are “greening” their credentials but not their portfolios.
