A must read, if only to see the flaws.
on 9 February 2015
A thorough scientific and thought provoking analysis of the impact of measured IQ on life prospects. If being born with a low IQ consigns you to the economic underclass with little hope of redress, then society must take note and act appropriately. So far so good but then the authors bring race into it! Since no policy prescription would ever be based on the race of the individual, only on their measured IQ, it is difficult to see what value there is in their observations of the correlation between race and measured IQ: particularly where much of this correlation might be due to other cultural and social environment issues. A potentially valuable scientific work has thus been consigned to the world of shouting matches and may soon be forgotten by the wider public.
