Strangely, Korea has a kimchi deficit and it’s getting worse

By: II stix

Safe for Work? Yes

Strange but true. South Korea runs a kimchi deficit. And it’s getting bigger.

South Korean exports of the pungent cabbage dish fell 16.3% in 2013 to $89.2 million. (The weaker yen, which makes Korean kimchi more expensive in Japan was to blame.) And imports, fueled by cheap Chinese kimchi, rose 5.9% to $117.4 million. The result? A culinary cabbage shortfall of $28.1 million.

China’s One-Child Policy Has Had Some Surprising Consequences for Kids

By: II stix

Safe for Work? Yes

The Chinese government announced today its plans to relax the controversial one-child policy: Under the new law, couples in which either member is an only child will be permitted to have two children. Introduced in 1979, the one-child policy has successfully reined in population growth but has created a host of other problems, from an aging population to an epidemic of risky sex-selective abortions and female infanticide perpetrated by families holding out for a boy.
