Japan, South Korea, and China created a skilled labor force by emphasizing small family size and educating their children. Skilled labor force, in turn, enabled rapid economic growth especially in the wake of globalization. One would have thought that a Korean-born president of the World Bank will be aware of these obvious facts. There is little point in sending Bank staff to various developing countries in expensive missions to write redundant reports. Rather, the healthcare infrastructure needs to be supported via direct and indirect policies for improving child health outcomes and for reducing fertility in developing countries.
