—“There is a significant error in Peterson’s calculation.
He claims that Jews with IQ’s of 145 or above are, in percentage terms, commensurate with their proportion of millionaires / billionaires. However his baseline for the total is merely the Jewish and White population.
However, White Americans now make up little over 60% of the overall population. His baseline thus comprises only 63% of the total US population. To use the entire US population as a baseline would reduce millionaire numbers to 25% of the total.
Peterson’s calculation therefore only adds up if he assumes that there exist no 145+ outside of the US’ White and Jewish populations.
Although it might be argued that US adult population demographics are likely to increase the accuracy of Peterson’s baseline, it nevertheless remains considerably off.”— Aaron Kahland
As far as I know the jews just have a wider distribution than we do, just as I suspect east asians have a narrower distribution than we do. So this means that the Ashkenazi produce outliers just as the upper caste anglos doe. But that little difference means 2x 130+ and 1×140+ for every one of ours. And we tend to think of mathematics as calculation (it is) but language is also a form of calculation, and we have just (or I have just) begun to understand that language is a means of calculating (transforming inputs and outputs) in a market (competition) for signaling and influence, that produces continuous improvements in knowledge IF not impeded by error (supernatural, magical, ideal) all of which prohibit precision and increase error counter to the natural, scientific, and operational descriptions. Hence white performance in the physical era and jewish performance in the verbal era. )
