Some say Russia --the more astute say China. I say low i.q. We are living in a rapidly advancing technological age and those nations with a high average i.q. have a big advantage in such a age as we witness developing all around us at an ever increasing pace. So where does America rank with its average i.q. compared to other nations?...number l6. Yes...in other words there are l5 other nations with a higher average i.q. than America. So why does America have such a low average i.q.?
