China to Ease One-child Policy

Off-beat China translated some Chinese netizens reactions to the loosening up one-child policy. The new “long-term balanced development of the population” approach will give more autonomy for city residents to have more than one child. However, many find the ease not really helpful. For example, one comment says:

A second child is out of the question because I can afford none. I don’t even know whether I can earn enough to support myself. If I cannot give my kids a decent life, it’s better not to have them at all.
