Sexual Frustration Will Hurt Asia's Economies by William Pesek

QUOTES FROM:
A BLOOMBERG article by William Pesek


  1. No matter what one calls it, the desire for sons in China, India and other Asian economies is causing a dangerous gender gap.
  2. In China, for example, 120 boys were born for every 100 girls in 2005, according to a new United Nations report.
  3. In it [their book] Valerie Hudson and Andrea den Boer warned that Asia's shortage of women is giving rise to an entire generation of young men with no prospects of finding a mate.
  4. They argue that biology, sociology and history suggest the imbalance will lead to crime and social disorder.
  5. Having a boy is your retirement plan and until that changes, Chinese may welcome fewer and fewer daughters.
