There are too many men in the world. Or not enough women. Either way, men now outnumber women by a huge margin in the world’s most populous countries; creating an imbalance never before seen in human history (although, many of the parties I got invited to in college came pretty close). An interactive piece from WaPo: Too Many Men. “A combination of cultural preferences, government decree and modern medical technology in the world’s two largest countries has created a gender imbalance on a continental scale. Men outnumber women by 70 million in China and India. The consequences of having too many men, now coming of age, are far-reaching.”
