It means the country has to feed less people and helps the trade,

but it also means that parents kill or disown their daughters to be brief.

There are also negative effects on gender like a gender imbalance of males to females; at a ratio of 1girl to 12 boys.this is because males are benefited more by the economy than women, so it is leaving 70 million without a partner. There is also the anomaly of having twins which is an exception to the policy because the policy only states (one birth), this is achieved by IVF.

As some positives, more people are living at higher wages than $6 a day because the money is less thinly spread out, because the government has so much power over families they can support them more and give them family planning and financial support.
