China Scraps Law Banning Parents from Having over two Children, increases limit to three

China has scrapped its controversial 'two child' policy and will now allow couples to have three kids. According to Chinese state media, the move was approved by President Xi Jinping in order to aid the country's ageing population. This comes after Beijing abolished its infamous 'one child' policy in 2016 which had been in place since the late-1970s. The government believed that the high cost of raising kids in Chinese cities deterred many couples from starting families so the two children policy wasn't helping with population growth .

Venezuela:The Paradox of Petro Statehood

Many paradoxes are based on false premises or arguments underlying the logical systems involved. Most petro states have many paradoxes based on incomplete presumptions. A petro state is one whose government’s income is deeply reliant on the export of oil and natural gas. Their economic and political powers are highly concentrated in an elite minority, and political institutions are weak and unaccountable, and corruption is widespread. Economists believe that petro states are afflicted by the Dutch Disease. In an afflicted country, a resource boom attracts large inflows of foreign capital, which leads to an appreciation of the local currency and a boost for imports that a...
