Volume 3 Issue 30: Two-Cent Economics

Male Organ and Economic Growth: Does Size Matter?

I knew some day this was bound to happen. Someone actually followed through with this research (pdf).

Here is part of the abstract:

This paper explores the link between economic development and penile length between 1960 and 1985... 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.
Yup. You read it right. Of course, correlation is not causality and all that gibberish, so don't try to jump the gun.

If your curiosity is getting ahead of you, here is a link on the average sizes of male organs across countries. Somehow this quote comes to mind:

If you think you are too big for small things, then you are too small for big things.
