  1. Like BB, I’ll thank you for this upload; and like BB, I’ll risk rudeness by making a request to you––to upload the upcoming PAID issue devoted to Rushton (in particular, the Nyborg interview). I don’t subscribe to academic journals, but I’d love to get a look at this issue.

    Thanks!

    • Oops. This should read:

      The Brazilian IQs were just replicated, though — at least for the general population. And the predicted racial pattern was also found:

      Flores-Mendoza, et al, (2012) Considerations about IQ and human capital in Brazil

      So, one important hit and one less important miss.

  2. Thanks for providing convenient access to a PDF copy of the new Lynn/Vanhanen book.

    On a different matter, you seem to have “disappeared” your earlier posting on Mex-Am Wordsum-IQ which strongly (and incorrectly) criticized my claims, thereby breaking my own link and removing the source for several of my quotes. Obviously, this is your blog and people always wish to hide their mistakes, but I wonder if it wouldn’t be more appropriate to retain the posting and simply append a correction or disclaimer as I had done in my Rural/Urban column.

    Finally, I have now published a detailed response to the Lynn/Nyborg rebuttal to my article: http://www.theamericanconservative.com/unz-on-raceiq-response-to-lynn-and-nyborg/

    • The post was placed under “pending review” because, among other problems, there were a number of typos in one of the charts. I haven’t had a chance to update it, because I have been a bit short of energy. That said, as I noted in reply, you were still incorrect with regards to the GSS data, as least given how group differences are typically calculated. The “Mexican born-AMerican”/White Wordsum difference narrowed from 1 SD to 0.5 SD from the 1980s to the 2000s, not from 1 SD to 0.33 SD.
