When I studied economic anthropology and sustainable development in college, I focused on sub-saharan Africa, even spent a month traveling by bus, camel, foot and bush taxi in southern Niger. Economically the video above is on target. In most cultures young men are risk takers, prone to gambling and drinking, women invest in the family, health care and education which seems to have a higher payoff.Did you know that due to cultural biases leading to infanticide and selective nutrition in China and India, there are 100 million girls missing? I got to see Amartya Sen speak in La Jolla, pretty amazing.
