Heritability, economic inequality, and the time course of the "Bell Curve" debate

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

I address three issues raised in the commentaries of Buckhalt, Jensen, and/or Murray: the heritability of intelligence, intelligence's role in economic inequality, and the time course of the debate over "The Bell Curve." In some areas, I feel these authors have advanced the scientific discourse. However, because they did not address some of the important recent articles cited in my original target article, some opportunities to advance the debate have been lost for the moment.
