Ronald Lee, UC Berkeley, 2010 6 1. Quote from newspaper story on fertility policy in China (c. 2003) “Others who want an additional child pay stiff fees. In Shanghai, the fee is three times the combined annual salary of the parents. In Zhejiang, it is 20% of the parents’ combined salary for five years. In Qinghai Province, the Government has added a carrot to the stick, offering smaller families special low-interest business loans.”
