*Do* remember that correlation is not causation

Male Organ and Economic Growth: Does Size Matter*?
Abstract
This paper explores the link between economic development and penile length between
1960 and 1985. It estimates an augmented Solow model utilizing the Mankiw-Romer-Weil
121 country dataset. The size of male organ is found to have an inverse U-shaped
relationship with the level of GDP in 1985. It can alone explain over 15% of the variation in
GDP. The GDP maximizing size is around 13.5 centimetres, and a collapse in economic
development is identified as the size of male organ exceeds 16 centimetres. Economic
growth between 1960 and 1985 is negatively associated with the size of male organ, and it
alone explains 20% of the variation in GDP growth. With due reservations it is also found
to be more important determinant of GDP growth than country\’s political regime type.
Controlling for male organ slows convergence and mitigates the negative effect of
population growth on economic development slightly. Although all evidence is suggestive
at this stage, the `male organ hypothesis\’ put forward here is robust to exhaustive set of
controls and rests on surprisingly strong correlations.

  1. Oh, that’s easy to explain. What needs to be understood is the nature of the human sexual system, particularly regarding the female, which neither of the two hegemonic theories do. The older Freudian idea proposed that females should naturally reach orgasm vaginally; this is now considered wrong. The current Feminist derived hegemonic theory is that only the clitoris matters for female stimulation, and the vagina is a sort of sideshow which only provides pleasure to the male. This is wrong too.

    The vagina and associated organs evolved as a stringent measure of male virility, which is a proxy for genetic and developmental health, by various parameters- general vigour, sustained erection, time to orgasm and, yes, penis size itself. In other words, human frequent sexual intercourse evolved as a means for females to select males for repeat encounters, and their reward for selecting virile males is sexual satisfaction by vaginal orgasm.

    As a result, in small penis economies, everyone is more miserable in general, since the females are dissatisfied and thus reluctant to provide repeated sex to their disappointing mates; the result is a general depression which translates to a poor level of enthusiasm in all matters, including the economic.

    In large penis economies, on the other hand, everyone is so happy shagging that economic success is of a lower subjective value; additionally large penis males need less economic success as compensation for their physical inadequacy. Again, economic performance will be sub-optimal, since everyone is shagging instead.

    So for best economic performance, a middling level of virility, including penis size, is optimal, leading to a general partial but not crippling sense of dissatisfaction which can be somewhat ameliorated with economic success; we should thus expect economic success to correlate with a society whose definining characteristic is a general air of disgruntlement, a middling level of sexual disappointment among women and jokes about sexually reluctant brides.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Western World!

  2. Jesus explains why the Japanese are so succesful and yet seems so miserable..

    I’d be surprised if they even get to 13.5 cm…

  3. So Much For Subtlety

    I would just like to apologise to all my fellow Brits. I guess I am holding you back by at least 2.5% a year. I am very sorry. It is just that up to now I thought the only cost was getting my suits made extra baggy around the knees.
