[With an IQ of 98, Americans have on average the same IQ as non-Americans, but this IQ is well below average compared to similarly wealthy countries]. The countries that have [...] higher per capita income than would be predicted from their IQs are Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Ireland, Israel, Qatar, Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland and the United States.
