INTELLIGENCE AND THE ECONOMY
Sanford Pinna, M.D.
Intelligence is the most important part of
any animal’s body because the ability to survive
is linked directly to the Intelligence of the animal.
Unfortunately, we have no clear concept of
We think that humans have more intelligence
than all other animals, but history may prove
that idea wrong if humans do not survive in the
The idea that humans will not survive in the
future is not far fetched. Humans have created
tools that can easily destroy all of them. Atomic
weapons are so plentiful on this planet, that if
they were all ignited, it is predicted that no
living thing would survive!
How intelligent is that?
If we use Survival as the Criteria of Intelligence,
we will have to point to Cockroaches as the most
intelligent animals, since it is predicted that
only Cockroaches will survive after an atomic
In the meantime, Humans are destroying
many species of plants and animals, thereby
making their platform for survival weaker and
weaker as each year passes.
WHAT IS INTELLIGENCE?
A definition of Intelligence, acceptable
to most people, is very hard to find.
Survival is generally not the most popular
Problem Solving is much more acceptable
to educators and social scientists.
The ease with which a person can solve
problems, determines the level of intelligence
for a small group of social scientists.
Society, however finds it difficult to
understand Problem Solving.
In order to satisfy the general public,
educators have developed a mathematical
analysis of human ability known as the
Intelligence Quotient OR I.Q.
Complex tests have been constructed
that measure memory, vocabulary, mathematical
ability and many other skills. These tests
presume an exposure to education where
such information could be gathered.
However, if you were raised in the
jungles of Africa or Brazil, such tests would
be completely worthless, because they
require an education, and exposure to the
knowledge of modern society in order to
reflect an individual’s ability to understand
SUCCESS AS A CRITERIA
Many psychologists and social scientists
believe that Success in business, education,
sports, arts, or any endeavor that is undertaken
by many people is the most practical criteria
After all, if a person is in competition
with millions of other people, and succeeds
better than most of them, his nervous system
must have some quality that is different than
We can call that quality intelligence.
The drawback to using Success is that
the number of successful people is too small
to be of any significance for social or governmental
If we were to use Financial Success as a
determinant of intelligence, we would find
that certain small countries have much more
success than the entire rest of the world.
Israel, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Singapore
and similar small countries can be seen as
much more successful than the rest of the
Is this because their citizens are more
intelligent, or because the social structure
of the country, its government, laws and
education is betterÃ¢â‚¬”or both?
Obviously, if you have intelligent people,
you will have a better society and government.
The corollary to this premise is, that if
you have un-intelligent people, you will find
a government, laws and education which is
not only weak, but harmful to the general
Since the Government, and, the Laws
are too difficult to define, the only one area
which we might call a manifestation of
Intelligence is Education.
EDUCATION AND INTELLIGENCE
Education, across the World, has evolved
to the degree that it is very similar in all
It is so similar that many governments
are faking the number of students that have
graduated from their primary or secondary
levels of education,
In Cuba, for example, the Cuban Government
has forced thousands of Cuban citizens to
complete studies in medicine. This is
a cheap way to raise the level of education
in Cuba, giving Cuba prestige in the
eyes of the world.
In addition, the Cuban Government,
uses their doctors as a commodity,
which they can sell to other countries and
receive other commodities in return. For
example, Cuba sends doctors to Venezuela
and receives oil in return.
A PUSH TO EDUCATE
All across the World today we are seeing
a push to educate the general population,
with the belief that this will prove to the
rest of the world that the people with the
most graduates from secondary and higher
education, are the most intelligent.
SURVEYING WORLD EDUCATION
Fifty years ago, the West– Europe and the
U.S.– had the largest number of educated
The West also had the highest number
of financially independent people.
The rest of the world had a low rate
of education and a very low rate of financially
Most importantly, the West had, and still has, the
Lowest Birth Rate in the World!
Either higher intelligence means a lower
birth rate, or more education means a lower
birth rateÃ¢â‚¬”or both.
One thing is certain, a low birth rate
induces more higher education. A family
with eight children cannot educate their
children as easily as a family with two
More higher education means a higher
living standard. The modern world demands
technical skills. Those skills are only available
to educated people.
If an individual has low intelligence but
achieves an education, by working harder
and longer than his more talented peer, he
will succeed in having just as high a living
standard as his more talented peer.
The ability to get a higher education
depends directly on the birth rate of the
SELF– DEFEATING GOVERNMENTS
In the world of the 21st. Century, we are
seeing “Self-Defeating Governments.’
Although most governments want their
public to be educated, there are some governments
that are trying to discourage education.
These are governments want an
uneducated population, because an uneducated
population is easier to control.
We are seeing a self-defeating government
in the United States, as the Obama Administration
pushes for lower educational standards and
the admission of more migrants with little
or no education.
A HORRENDOUS ERROR!
The Obama administration is making a
horrendous error. By having a less educated
population, America will not be able to compete
with those Eastern nations which are rapidly
educating their populaces.
Because of this inability to compete,
job losses will increase and a vicious cycle
of no education, job loss will ensue.
The USA will become a loser on the totem
pole of economic power.
With this will come severe dissatisfaction
with the Obama Administration.
This Administration which believes that
minorities can keep it in power will find that
even the minorities will turn against it.
The result of this, which we are already
seeing with the election of Scott Brown
for Senator of Massachusetts, will become
more apparent with each new week.
This will bring an instability to the
economy of the U.S.
The Obama Team is spending money
as though their fantasies were reality.
Today, Thursday, January 21, 2010, the
Congress and the Obama Team, is on the
verge of throwing FOUR TRILLION DOLLARS
into the American Banking System!
The American Banking System is a
group of financial entities almost totally
controlled by the people who put Obama
and his Team into power.
If the American Public cannot see
what is happening to them at this very
moment, it indicates to me that their
Level of Intelligence is much lower
than that needed for Survival.
