Women aren't great at parking but would run the world much better

I wouldn't be great at the parking myself. Let me say that at the very beginning. And later on, as you read down through this ground-breaking and controversial piece, please remember I have made this frank and courageous admission.

I will go further. I find it nearly impossible to back into parking spaces. There are two kinds of people in the world. The first category are those prudent, careful ones who back in to the parking place. The planners are rewarded by an easy exit.

Then there's the rest of us, who drive straight in and put off the toughest part of parking until the very end. The parking test theory also applies to economics. For sure, the Greeks are not backers in.
