Recently, by the ctrip group founder James liang, the former Evergrande group chief economist Ren Ze equality experts to set up “yukon expansions of population studies” issued the marriage and family report 2022 edition of the People’s Republic of China (hereinafter referred to as the “report”), and report on the status quo of China’s marital status, influence factors are analyzed, and called for the related policy support.In the report, experts called for “housing subsidies for families with children, a 10% discount for the price of one child, a 70% discount for the price of the second child and a 50% discount for the price of the third child” in areas with high housing prices, and “lowering the legal marriage age to 18” policies, which sparked heated debate online.Will our young people of the right age pay for these suggestions?Can it improve marriage and childbearing?How you think?From 2013 to 2020, the number of first-time marriages in China has nearly halved, according to the report.The number of people getting married for the first time in China is expected to continue to decline in the coming years as the number of people of marriageable age is on the decline.Meanwhile, the number of births in China has declined for five consecutive years from 2017 to 2021, when only 10.62 million people were born.If the delay in first marriage and childbirth is estimated at one to three years, the number of births in the coming years is likely to be much lower than last year’s 10.62 million.In this regard, Liang Jianzhang, Ren Zeping and other experts called on the government departments to introduce relevant policies to encourage young people to marry and give birth, the report suggests: 1, increase the supply of residential land in big cities, give families with children purchase subsidies;2. Reduce the cost of childbearing, raising and education;3. Relax the conditions for adoption and placement;4. The legal marriage age was lowered to 18;5. Guaranteeing single women’s reproductive rights;6. Initiate the legislative feasibility study of China’s Cohabitation Law.Among them, housing subsidies are provided through mortgage interest rebates or discounts on housing prices.For example, the return of two children family mortgage interest 50%, for three children family mortgage interest can be all subsidies return.Alternatively, in areas with high housing prices, there can be a 10 per cent discount for one child, a 70 per cent discount for a second child and a 50 per cent discount for a third child (up to a cap subsidy).The cost of this subsidy could be covered by increasing the supply of land for housing in areas and big cities where people are moving in.”10 percent off for one child, 30 percent off for the second child, 50 percent off for the third child…”Is the housing subsidy attractive to the school-age youth?Would they want to give birth?Top News launched a poll on March 29, and results so far show that 57.5 percent of respondents said “no”, 23.3 percent said “yes” and 19.2 percent said “Yes”.If the implementation of children family purchase subsidies, why are young people of the right age willing to live?Why not?Top news · Henan Business Daily reporter interviewed 10 women of different ages and identities, their answers are different.”If I was in my 20s, I might, but I’m 40 and I’m not going to have another baby.”Wang Jing (pseudonym) is very thoughtful about having a third child. “I already have two children, so I don’t want to have another one in terms of my career, my health, my energy and so on,” she said.Ren once said that the post-75s and post-85s are the main birth force.But for those born in the 1980s, such as Wang Jing, 40 is the golden age for professionals to strive, and having a third child means no further career development for two to three years.Secondly, women over the age of 35 who give birth to children are considered to be elderly parturients, and the risk of childbirth increases exponentially.The change of fertility concept is also the reason why more and more school-age young people do not want to have children. “Fewer children, better children” has become the consensus of many people.”Raising a child is not just a financial cost,” said Ms. Yutian (pseudonym). “Parents also need to spend a lot of time and provide quality education, and that can’t be made up for in the housing price.””Lack of energy” is also a common reason for young people to refuse to have children. Hejin (pseudonym), a mother of a baby girl, said, “Even one baby has taken over my life, which makes me exhausted.If I had it to do over again, I wouldn’t have any children.”Ma (pseudonym), who has yet to give birth, said, “I have planned to have a child in my life. If the policy is implemented and the housing subsidy is 10 percent off the house price, I would like to have one.”Can the policy suggestions put forward by Liang Jianzhang and Ren Zeping improve the marriage and childbearing situation?Listen to the experts.Zanu-pf member, demography association, vice chairman of henan province, zhengzhou university of light industry, a professor at the red fang said: “the Chinese marriage and family report 2022 edition study thoroughly solidly, many Suggestions are very well, such as the liberalisation of adoption and adoption conditions, protect the reproductive right of single women, all of these can have encouraged examination play a positive role.But there are individual proposals, and how they will be implemented remains to be considered.”It is true that housing subsidies for families with children can ease the burden of young people to get married and have children, but who should provide the subsidies?The subsidies involve multiple interests, which will be the biggest problem for the implementation of policy proposals.Moreover, lowering the marriage age would have little effect on urban people.Its function is to legalize the marriage of people who get married early in remote and poor areas, but the resulting adverse elimination of population quality will increase the burden of social welfare.Xing said the low fertility rate is caused by a number of factors, including a decrease in the population of childbearing age, a change in fertility attitudes, a rise in female education, a rise in the cost of childbirth and a decrease in the rate of return on childbirth.To this, the line red fang proposed to encourage marriage and childbearing clever move — practical for the family to provide support.”To encourage marriage and childbearing, the key lies in the word ‘practical’, to truly reduce the cost of childbirth.”She suggested that the government take measures in the public sector to support families in terms of material, time and services, encourage and advocate childbirth, reduce the cost of childbirth and improve the accessibility of services.For example: 1. Encourage men to be more involved in child rearing and family affairs;2. Explore a reasonable way for the state, enterprises and families to share the cost of childbirth;3. Provide high-quality and diversified prenatal and postnatal services;4. Include outpatient medical expenses for children aged 0-6 in the scope of national medical insurance;5. Incorporating infant and child care services into basic public services;The combination of economic and social policies will reduce the worries of childbearing and rearing.Low fertility is a complex issue, with plenty of room for thought.”In recent years, the number of women receiving college education (male to female ratio: 0.84) and graduate education (male to female ratio: 0.7) has far exceeded that of men. Should we reflect on whether China’s education system discriminates against men?In middle school, students learn more about liberal arts than science. Is that why men are going to vocational high schools?Source: Henan Business Daily
