No mention of the Chinese vultures driving the process?
China is still ruled by the communist party. The country's billionaires, although greedy, are certainly not as free in their actions as their western counterparts. If you have approx.1.5 billion people, you'll have to do whatever it takes to create jobs. Otherwise, your country will never get out of poverty. I believe that the motivation of the Chinese is more about developing the country at the moment, while Europeans and Americans are much more interested in profit margins.

Your solution to eliminate or reduce their numbers is totalitarian.
Huh? How can contraception be totalitarian? The opposition of the catholic church (and other religions) to artificial birth control is actively contributing to the massive problem of overpopulation in the Third World. Reduce the birth rate or we are all toast.
Speaking of the church, by the way: I honestly thought you are a devout Christian.
