Charles Murray Re-enters Great American Inequality Debate

Ever read "super taboo"? This is an even bigger taboo.

I'm more interested in the fact that the taboo exists than believing the controversial ideas.

But the comments mention an interesting idea, independent of race: try to correlate high intelligence with genetic markers. Then make a [insert biotech-geek-speak] therapy to strengthen/express such genetic markers.

I'm been told even a slight increase in IQ (even for a minority of the population) has a huge, nonlinear effect on GDP.

All in all, this is the same complaint as I'm sure I've mentioned before: "why isn't there a smart-pill without significant long or short term side effects?"
