Wolfers weighs in on gender imbalance on college campuses

November 29, 2021 The New York Times

Justin Wolfers penned an opinion piece for the New York Times, sharing his views on the striking gender imbalance on college campuses these days: roughly three women students for every two men. 

“The simple mathematics of more women than men earning college degrees means that many highly educated women will either have to partner with less educated men, or forgo partnership. We currently live in an era of work and family, but this might presage a harder choice between work or family, and consequently a lower birthrate,” he said.
