A fascinating article on Salon Slate about using economic theory to analyze the problem of 100 million missing women in Asia.

1) I didn't know 100 million women were missing. (Whatever the true cause, this number is the result of a statistical analysis, not an aggregation of missing persons reports.)
2) Both the initial approach and the revised solution are fascinating.
3) If there's not a story or three in this, I'm a macacque.
