One comment on “Hive Mind

  1. Many thanks for the generous review. FYI I used IQ data for OPEC countries to test for reverse causation in my paper with Schneider, “IQ in the Production Function.” The thin data are only suggestive, but point in the same direction you find: the 1973 price shock didn’t show up in higher IQ scores in OPEC countries, even decades later.

    You might find pages 12 and 13 of our paper of interest, on OPEC, East Asia, and tests for reverse causation. I presume the link to the paper will show up in my name, it’s on my homepage at GMU.

    Thanks again for the thoughtful review!
