    Default Intelligent are being screwed over

    A nation's GDP is primarily a factor of the intelligence of it's citizens, and the economic system, mainly on the axis of controlled & communism - free market & capitalism.

    On a national level, intelligence is far less of a predictor for personal income. In other words, the intelligent are almost entirely benefactors, and less of a beneficiaries for the products of their intelligence.

    What are the main tricks how the less intelligent reap the benefits made by the intelligent?

    The intelligents goal is usually intelligence not money. We may go along with someone making money just for the experience and that is what makes us happy, not the monetary goal.

    Not to mention the cash flows from executives to prostitutes to glamour shops. Entire industries focus on how to attract the non-thinking. It requires a lot of thought, really. In the end, the non-thinking make it all go around.

    I think export oriented countries like Finland are better at recognizing talent and intelligence and building a structure underneath that.

    Intelligence is way too politicized and dumbed down here.

    That might be it, too. It's a tough nut to crack.

    I've no idea of that. I've read Finland being placed nicely in some tech charts, but I've expected us to be more traditional and hierarchical. Or then not. I really don't know for sure.

    Yessir!

    Although this applies more to Ps than Js. Ps seek internal consistency over external goal completion; Js are the other way around.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    you forget that without the education system and the constant flow of cultural data children and young adults are being subjected to the average intelligence of a given rich country would be lower.

    Also, as nations get richer, nutrition gets better. Which's especially important during early childhood. and so on

    Take for example old iq tests. Even on the purely logical aspects of an IQ test, if we used today's base 100 on early 20th century kids, we'd have to see our ancestors as, in average, slightly retarded

    I've sometimes thought that a person with dull enough mind will REQUIRE expenditures of eur 100 to get the kicks someone could have for 10 eur.
