Summary
  • Why does poverty exist? Why is there social pathology and human degradation? Is it always because of oppression and discrimination? No, says Professor Seymour Itzkoff of Smith College. The real reason is the tragedy of low human intelligence and the consequent inability of humans to compete in highly complex and dynamic economic and social environments. The Road to Equality: Evolution and Social Reality contains Itzkoff's highly controversial analysis of the failures of

Itzkoff writes that many of the social pathologies in nations such as the United States, as well as their relative economic decline, can be so attributed. The future of human equality, he concludes, must lie in an international resolve to face up to the most basic challenge to world peace, the variability of intelligence in the human species
