55 What’s the Message Here?

56 Demography ► may be no surer predictor of destiny than trade data. But of the two momentous changes championed by Deng Xiaoping a quarter-century ago, coercive population controls and experiments with market economics, the jury is still out on which will do more to shape China's long-term potential.

57 Demography

58 ► There are too many retirees in China, and not enough young people to replace them. ► Think about it—WHY? You know this!

59 D emography ► "The evidence is overwhelming that a large population of unmarried adult males is a risk factor for both crime and war," Ms. den Boer said in an interview. "The fact that China is an authoritarian country is another risk factor."
