Guest: Valerie Hudson, professor and George H.W. Bush chair in the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University Chinese officials have announced they will relax the one-child policy in place for more than 30 years. Couples will now be allowed to have two kids. Part of the motivation for the change is China’s shortage of young people to take care of an aging population and fill jobs that fuel the nation’s economy.
