Reviewing the Relationship between Intelligence and Success

Fellow China watcher Nick Kristof has a great op-ed that looks at the relationship between three races that have traditionally enjoyed above average success in America and intelligence.

His policy conclusion:

"...the most decisive weapons in the war on poverty aren’t transfer payments but education, education, education."

The broader lesson:

"...success depends less on intellectual endowment than on perseverance and drive."

Take responsibility for your own future!
