Scott Tong of Marketplace is concluding his three years as the program’s Shanghai bureau chief by taking an in-depth look at the One-Child Policy as it approaches its 30-year anniversary. Tong will be filing reports on the policy all week; the first segment aired last night and can be heard here. Two of his interviewees are anthropologist Susan Greenhalgh and demographer Wang Feng, both professors at UC Irvine and friends of the blog. Marketplace has also set up a special webpage on Tong’s series, which can be found here.
