Here is another debate:

 

Poor people are poor , cause they have low IQs , otherwise, they would've made their own ways eventually to get rich ..

                   Or

 

It is nothing to do with IQ it is more of the chances of opportunity .

 

 

What you say ? Smile

It is nothing to do with IQ and not even with the oppurtunities, when there is no zeal to come out of "poorness" any number of oppurtunties won't be of any use.

 Has anyone read The Bell curve and IQ and of course the debate that followed?

 High IQ -high intelligence and higher creativity are desirable, but unless they are linked to some kind of moral compass which includes work ethics and higher thinking, it won't make them any better then the rest who may not posses these traits. Smile

High IQ alone is not sufficient.There are several geniuses who are paupers. A high business IQ can exploit other intellect for personal gain. The knowledge has to be valuable and sustainable. To be rich you need valuable knowledge in a profitable field along with the personal intellect to sustain it for yourself without being exploited.

I think most people are either crooked and rich or hardoworking and lucky. Poor people neither resort to crooked means or cant resort to them or are hardworking and unlucky...

If killing and robbing is not a punishable crime.. there wont be any poor people.... Smile

poverty is the state initiated by subliminal dilemma bet' the right and wrong, good and the bad...

i think poor people are poor to a large extent because of low IQ. the low IQ in turn can be linked to fewer opportunities to develop higher IQ. so it's a chicken and egg thing.Tongue

yes yes, we know of exceptions. am just talking about statistical averages that i hypothesize we'd find. just to preempt all the "this one was high IQ but dirt poor" kinda enumerations. 6, 7 billion world population, so shldnt be too surprised to find lots of exceptionsSmile

also, imo morality has very little to do with poverty/ affluence, unless one is talking about the poverty/ affluence of the mind and the soul.Tongue lots of bad 'uns enjoy life to the last gasp, belying the other wild theories of heaven and hell being on earth alone.Wink
