Race, IQ, and Wealth: World’s Poorest and Richest States

The direct correlation between race, IQ, and achievement has been dramatically illustrated once again with the news that 33 of the world’s 60 poorest countries are in Africa.

The list, extracted from data collated by Global Finance Magazine, found that only four countries out of the bottom 25 are not African. They are Afghanistan, Kiribati, the Solomon Islands, and Haiti.
Based on data from the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, the magazine ranked the world's countries according to their GDP based on purchasing power parity per capita.
The PPP takes into account the relative cost of living and the inflation rates of the countries to compare living standards among the different nations.
The GDP per capita listed represents the amount of wealth produced in 2015 and is expressed in international dollars.

It is of course no coincidence that all of these states have dismally low IQs, with many hovering around the 60 point level.
The full report found that the richest countries in the world—excluding the artificially rich oil-producing nations whose GDP is completely unrelated to the people living in those states—are all European and South East Asian, precisely the states with the highest average IQ populations.
