China vs. India

China and India share many similarities. Both are rapidly developing, relatively poor, huge economics who are together changing the shape of the world economy. But they have some fundamental differences, and their economic growth is occuring in radically different sectors. According to Marginal Revolution, that's mainly down to different labour laws.

Isn't it true that Indian's average IQ is 81 while Chinese IQ is 105? If true, it is just a waste of time discussing China vs. India.

Did you know that average measured IQ increases significantly with each passing generation? I really don't think that this is because we're all on average smarter than our parents, but rather because we've got better at taking IQ tests.

When I see large differences in measured IQ across race or nationality, I assume the same explanation. There are substantial differences between India and China both culturally and in terms of their education system. These differences are likely to be far larger than any differences between inherent, underlying intelligence.

More ominously, if people believe they will outperform others just because "they're smarter" (which seems to be the thinking behind your comment), then that's a recipe for disaster. Economic development is far more dependent on applying your intelligence as a country to the production of wealth than just being smart. (How else would you explain China's poor economic performance in the past?)

To re-iterate my first point: I do not for a minute believe that the Chinese as a race are inately much smarter than Indians. And even if they were, that does not ensure better economic performance for China than India.

Why would anyone want to compare India and China? It's no contest. Lets move on before all those pesky Indians start bickering.

3The same applies to you Tape drives should be kept as far away from contaminants as possible; for example, they shouldn't be placed directly on the carpet or kept in dusty environmentsI therefore propose an experiment
