Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
Reminds me of this quote by Fray Luis Miranda in 1664."Our Spanish monarchy is being consumed away hour by hour and moment by moment....(The religious orders are carrying off) the bravest men, the healthiest, the most upstanding, those with the best faces, the most talented and skilful. There is not among them a cripple, nor hardly a dwarf, nor one that is ugly, or dull, or ignorant...In the world (remain) only the dregs and dross of men."Seems to me the MGOW not marrying are much like the Spanish monastics.
@AnonymousThe reason is simple. Women do not chase men with charcteristics described by Frai Luis Miranda. So, their only option is a monastery / clergy.By the way, the same complaints were about nunneries.
Wait, they're projecting that nobody will get married by 2040? Doesn't that seem a little stupid to anybody else?
