If You're So Dumb, Why Aren't You Rich?

Crazy-fun new study in press at the journal Intelligence. It attempts to puzzle out the connection between IQ and wealth, only to come up with the entertaining -- if unsurprising --  result: There isn't one. Bad news for brainy geeks everywhere.

While it doesn't stand up to statistical scrutiny, an eyeball check of the above figure does make it look like there is a soft inverse relationship.
