    This is the biggest economic threat to China.

    The gap between the number of men and women of marriage age is growing. That is not good for the stability of the regime.

    Very, very true.

    There are something like 50 million more young men than women in China. Women are a civilizing force. All those young men without women is not a good situation for anyone. Well, except for the Chinese women...

    Awesome article and a good example of a market failure with negative social externalities in a slightly odd-ball context.

    At some point we as human beings need to start valuing our girls; lest we all perish. Shame on any mother who looks down on her baby girl with disappointment. Shame on any father who views only his sons as his heirs. Woe to any woman who kills her unborn daughter merely because she is a girl. Celebrate all the lives born into this world. The beauty of this world comes in female and male form. To ignore this simple fact is to give birth to a world in imbalance which is always a dangerous thing.
