Unnatural selection

Paul Sweeney: In Tuesday's Financial Times there was a really provocative book reivew by Joshua Kurlantzick on a book by Mara Hvistendahl on the unnatural selection of boys over girls. He and she explore the implications for certain countries if this really develops much further. Whatever ones views on demography, on abortion, on ultrasounds,on boys and girls, on equality or whatever, this is very thought provoking.

I expect the Chinese government will be able to deploy its plethora of huge State-owned Enterprises (much beloved of bloggers here) to address this problem.
