According to The Economist, ten percent of Chinese men cannot find wives in the next decade. Bascially, it's saying.. since most parents in China prefers a son over a daughter b/c they want to carry on their family name and b/c of the law imposed by one child, its causing gender imbalance. There are more males than females... and as years pass by more males are singled out, they cant get married b/c they cant find wives.

So what do you think about this whole aspect... I mean, its not looking so good because those parents who wants their family to be carried on by wanting a male offspring is now playing a reverse role. By that I mean, those males are stuck, they cant find wives, therefore they cant produce offspring, meaning they are ending their family name. Know what I mean?

Now do you think this is a huge concern, or is it just something that happens in the villages?

In China, marriage goes like

A class men marry B class women
B class men marry C class women
C class men marry D class women

This is why we have the "leftover" women phenomenon in the first place. Alongside gender disparity, all the pressure will fall onto the D class Chinese men. No coincidence they are also the main market for mail order brides.

Course, all this is based on a very crude 1 man to 1 woman forever life. Which is actually not as common as people might think.

According to survey, there are more ten million men than women aged at 20-30 years old in China, which is a huge social problem.

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
