China's ageing population


It's an "age" old question. What does a country do when there are not enough young people to take care of the older people? Well, one of the world's largest economies could soon be facing that issue. China might have close to a billion and a half people, but its birth rate, like much of the rest of the developed world, has remained low in recent years.

Rick Sanchez discusses all of this and more on the latest episode of Direct Impact with Dr. Kenneth Hammond, a historian at New Mexico State University.
