But what about IQ? Aren’t today’s rich more likely to have higher IQs than the general population?

Apparently not. At least not according to a new study by Jay Zagorsky, a research scientist at the Ohio State University’s Center for Human Resource Research, which found that the wealthy aren’t more likely to have higher IQs than the general population. . . . In combing the data, Mr. Zagorsky found no meaningful correlation between large wealth and high IQ scores.
