This is a problem that will have a strong impact on how the Chinese economy in particular and the world economy in general will shape up in the coming decade and the next – with the one-child policy showing results now – China has a huge gender imbalance problem – we spotted this stat today, that 118 boys are born in China for every 100 girls (Source) – we had in fact written about this a year back – China: 24 Million Men To Be Perpetual Bachelors by 2020

Here is one result, to help us understand the impact – The ‘Chinese Bachelor’ Problem: No Downpayment = No House = No Wife – From that post – “The gender imbalance has in turn driven housing prices up – by some calculations, some $8 trillion of the appreciation in property values can be attributed to gender imbalance alone”
