1:23 am
call now to request your free decision guide. and learn more about the kinds of plans that will be here for you now - and down the road. i have a lifetime of experience. so i know how important that is. the chinese government ending its one-child per family policy. couples are now allowed to have two children. the one-child policy was implemented in the 1970s to prevent the growing population. with a percentage of the population over 50, it is time for a change. let's go to cnn's steven jiang. this seemed to be a human right policy. that is not the reason, steven, why they made the change.
1:24 am
tell us about the reason. >> reporter: you are exactly right, christine. over the years, we heard so many horror stories related to the one-child policy. especially in the form of those brutal enforcements in the countryside. forced abortions. forced sterilization. after trying to change the policy for years, the government is changing it now not because heated debate over human rights, but the economic reality. the government is facing a double whammy. a shrinking work force and aging population at the time the economy is slowing down. you have factories unable to hire workers and hospitals are overwhelmed. a lot of officials are worried about this country getting old before it gets rich. that's what prompted the policy change, christine. they are saying it clearly we are doing this now allowing one couple two children nationwide to address the demographic
1:25 am
challenges. >> steven, what about gender balance? for so many years, it was a preference to have a one child, a boy. that is a ramification for baby girls in the country in orphanages. what about the gender balance? >> reporter: that's another issue. this new policy is trying to address because gender imbalance is more and more serious. especially in the countryside where traditional culture means a lot of farmers prefer boys because boys, when they grow up cannot only handle heavier farm work, but will stay home to take care of parents when they get old. that's where you also saw more of the negative effects of the one-child policy. the selective abortions and sterilization. the two-child policy is not changing the system addressing the root cause.
1:26 am
the state is still trying to dictate how many children you are allowed to have. that is not acceptable. no matter the quota. >> still it is the central government telling families how to live their lives. steven jiang, thank you. palestinian attacks on israelis is spreading into the west bank this morning. 11 attacks in the city of hebron in the last week. on thursday, israeli forces shot and killed a palestinian man who stabbed a soldier in the head. tensions are rising in the region since israelis are refusing to release the bodies of the palestinians killed. and breaking overnight. an american businessman arrested in tehran. how will this complicate talks with the u.s. and iran? we are live next.
1:27 am
1:28 am
1:29 am
1:30 am
breaking overnight. an american businessman arrested in tehran increasing tensions as u.s. officials meet with iran over the war on isis. and more than a dozen passengers injured when the plane catches fire on the runway. a shakeup in the race for president. candidates playing defense after the heated debate. who is up? welcome back to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm alison kosik.
1:31 am
an iranian-american businessman arrested in tehran. he is identified as siamak namazi. he is the head of strategic planning. he was visiting family two weeks ago and arrested by security forces. the announcement of the namazi arrest complicating the peace talks getting under way in austria. let's go live to vienna and bring in correspondent frederik pleitgen. so many questions with this. what is the justification for arresting him and does it have anything to do with the fact that talks are just getting under way? >> reporter: i think it has something to do with the iran nuclear deal. it does. it may have something to do with the talks getting under way here. it is not clear, alison, it is something that secretary of state kerry says he raised last night in the talks with zaraif. the state department said they
1:32 am
talked about several issues with the nuclear agreement with iran and americans detained by iranian authorities. of course, mr. namazi is the fourth american remaining in detention. the second is jason rezaian, the washington post reporter, in detention for more than 450 days now. there are many, if you look inside, the iran experts or other people believe this could be a standoff with the moderates in iran around the president rouhani and the hard liners around the supreme leader and the hard liner security apparatus who don't like the nuclear deal and warned about what they believe is too much american influence in iran. of course, we know mr. namazi was someone pushing for closer economic relations to invest in iran at the time he was taken into custody. the big question is how much influence does the iranian government have when it comes to
1:33 am
getting mr. namazi released and how much influence do they have here at the talks as well. to what respect do they actually speak for the hard liners in iran and lead the iranian security forces which are active in syria. it is a big step forward that the iranians here at the table and all parties are coming together to try to solve the syria crisis. the big issue here on the table, alison, is the future of bashar al assad. there is america and allies who say assad needs to go and the others on the other side who believes there needs to be political transition in syria. they believe assad could be part of it. no one believes there will be a solution to the problem here in vienna today, but the fact they are meeting and if this meeting doesn't completely collapse and fall apart, many will see it as a success. >> you look at the arrest of the iranian-american and you think about the complicated
1:34 am
negotiations process going on with bashar al assad. how much is this lessened in the hands of those sitting at the >> reporter: i think it does significantly extend. it raises questions as to whether or not the people for the iranian said are negotiating in vienna here today. the forces that iran has on the ground come from the elite guard. the revolution guard does not answer to the iranian government. it answers to iran's supreme leader. the supreme leader has been critical of the united states. anti-american rhetoric coming from his camp right after the nuclear agreement. there have been posters set up in tehran saying no negotiations with the u.s. about anything except the nuclear deal. we want to warn about american cultural influence on iran. it is something we need to
1:35 am
prevent and be vigilant. you have the arrests. so far, there really isn't much that president rouhani and the foreign minister have been able to do about it. how much influence do they have on the iran military strategy if syria, but it is important to speak to them because iran is still one of the major backers of president assad along with the russians. if there is a solution, the iranians will have to be part of it. >> complicated process. frederik pleitgen, thank you. a six day manhunt for the kentucky fugitive is over. 62-year-old floyd ray cook, a convicted robber and rapist, wanted for shooting a police officer in tennessee, was killed in a shootout in brooksville, tennessee. he stopped at a home and asked a couple for a ride. they recognized him and called

1:39 am
behind. and jeb bush's performance is uneven at best. he is trying to reassure his donors his campaign is not in a free-fall. >> you told donors on a conference call you will get better at this. what will you do to get better at this? >> we have eight more debates. i'll do what candidates have to do which is rudely interrupt and not answer the questions that are asked. hopefully the debate moderators will ask substantive questions. it's going fine. >> are you having fun? >> you saw it. having lots of fun. >> marco rubio, who was criticized by bush, for missing senate votes, he hits the campaign trail. he stayed in washington long enough to vote on the budget deal forcing him to miss a scheduled lunch appearance in council bluff. there is so much among republicans to try to change the formats of future debates.
1:40 am
the jeb bush camp had the least amount of time. equal time, more substantive questions and try to make it more of a conversation to the american people. with the other candidates on the stage as well. you will see a different kind of debates. >> it is up to the moderators to keep control of the candidates. the rules can only go so far. >> it will continue to be interesting. let's talk about ben carson and donald trump. they have been lighting up cnbc and the debate format. trump at a stop in reno on thursday. listen to what he said about the moderators. >> maybe every moderator should show they vote republican because why should we have these people that hate everything we stand for and i won't mention his name, but the questions were so nasty.

1:53 am
let's go to cnn's steven jiang. this has less to do with human rights and more to do with the chinese trying to stimulate its economy. >> reporter: alison, you are absolutely right. over the years, we have heard so many horror stories related to the brutal enforcement of the one-child policy. especially in the countryside. forced abortions and forced sterilization. all of the stories we heard from activists. now the end has come, but not for the reasons they like to see. as you mentioned, the government is facing a double whammy of a shrinking work force and aging population at the time the economy is slowing down. you have factories unable to hire workers and hospitals and social services are overwhelmed.
1:54 am
they set in clear terms in a document they are launching the nationwide policy to address the issue of the aging poll legislation and promote what they call a more balanced population growth. alison. >> how likely is it that citizens will want to have a second child? there it is a mindset now they are used to having one. do you think that will factor into maybe this population not exploding as much as the chinese government is hoping? >> reporter: that's a very good question. if the goal of the government is to change the demographic shift, it's unlikely it will happen anytime soon. remember, the party has been tweaking and relaxing this policy over recent years. two years ago, they allowed some couples, those with at least one spouse being the only one to have a second child. very few took up the offer
1:55 am
because the cost of raising children is very high. i talked to the people after the latest announcement. they have done the math. they simply cannot afford going through another pregnancy and raising another child. that's way beyond their means. although they are allowed to have a second child, it is unlikely they will do it anytime soon. especially for many middle class urban residents which this is targeting. >> cnn's steven jiang, thank you. halloween is tomorrow. next month we have another holiday. >> what are you going to be? >> a party pooper. >> i want to get a picture of that. >> another holiday. pumpkin pie, turkey and gravy and power shopping. find out which retailer is open during thanksgiving dinner. that's right. that's next.
