Clearing the Air

trouble_2_o copy_905I created a new page, one that is perhaps the ultimate intro to HBD for people who have been woefully mislead all their lives:

JayMan’s Race, Inheritance, and IQ F.A.Q. (F.R.B.)

This can also been seen at right for future reference ->

This is in response to the forthcoming book. I will imagine many of you will find it quite useful in the coming weeks. Now consider yourself ready for the ensuing tumult. You’re welcome!

And hey folks, let’s not forget to support the JayMan. 🙂 You can see where your money goes! Thanks a lot for your support!donate_paypal

    I still wish there was a book on HBD (which might be a way to also monetize the blog), but this is the next best thing. It’s great to have the basics summarized like this, especially as a reference to people who just assume that this body of knowledge doesn’t exist. Great job!

    The next few weeks are going to be fun. Race deniers are going insane over this thing.

    I agree with Staffan. A great job. Maybe you should change your blog name to Jayman’s HBD Almanac or HBD Encyclopaedia. I don’t know where you get the energy…

    It does not compare with your herculean efforts, but I do my bit within my niche to address another frequently repeated bullshit (FRB) that I see all the time : rapid economic growth in lower-IQ countries does not invalidate the reality of IQ disparities between countries or their persistence.

    By the way, the economist Garrett Jones cleaned up Lynn & V’s IQ data, put them through rigourous robustness tests as used in the economic growth literature, and found that IQ is by far the best measure of human capital, even when you exclude the rich countries. See In my opinion, LV’s IQ regressions on growth have been superseded by those in the Jones-Schneider paper which was published in the Journal of Economic Growth. JS situates human-capital-proxied-by-IQ squarely within the empirical research agenda of growth economists. You should list the JS paper on your HBD Fundamentals page.
