Early child development is an exciting subject, in which lots of very original work is going on in China.

The only real prosperity is share prosperity. The only real successful societies are those where there is social justice. An agenda for social justice has to begin with children and has to begin with an agenda that says every child no matter who his parents are has to have access to adequate nutrition, adequate healthcare, and adequate education.

You will find high quality early childhood programs have higher rates of return. They promote skills, they create a base of opportunity, so they expand social mobility, which is not easily quantified, but they certainly increase the earnings, the capacity, and productivity of the entire economy.
