Bloomberg News columnist William Pesek asks if China has not seen the kind of large-scale protests that have recently shaken other nations because of its sex ratio policy.
"A common thread linking events in Egypt, Bahrain, Tunisia, Libya and elsewhere is big populations of disaffected youth. They’re angry about greed, corruption, the rich-poor divide and unaccountable leaders. Many Chinese harbor similar gripes, yet demographics works in the Communist Party’s favor," writes Pesek.
