[NYPost] A good man is hard to find, especially in this economy.

The country is facing a crisis of broke dudes, according to new research from Cornell University ‐ and it’s left successful ladies single and disgruntled.

In the study, published in the Journal of Marriage and Family, Cornell sociologists explored America’s declining marriage rate. They discovered a lack of financially eligible bachelors.

"There are shortages of economically attractive men," lead study author Daniel T. Lichter tells The Post. Although we like to think marriage is based on love, he says, it "also is fundamentally an economic transaction," and women want partners whom they can call their equals.

Lichter, who has been studying marriage for 30 years, says the gig economy and a "lack of good jobs" have contributed to the dearth of well-to-do dudes. So has the fact that women are outpacing men educationally, upending the age-old dominance of the male breadwinner over the past five to 10 years.
