Youve also repeated Economics is not a science several times which is absurd. Do you know the math envolved with economics rivals that of engineering & physics? Saying economics is not a science is just makes you sound sillier.

These are an example of the course work required for a doctorate in economics

Sir William Arthur Lewis undoubtedlyover had mathematics skills beyond the average professor in economics
In fact the category is called "Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences"

I don't know why my first reply didn't appear, despite my other message, so I'l try again.

First, Economy having math in the coursework, doesn't mean that is as exact science as pure Math, Physics or Chemistry.

And Economy itself, is as exact science as Psychology, for instance. Psychology relying heavily on stats won't turn them into an exact science, cause it also depends on subjective speculation, same as Economy.

Second, the Economy prize IS NOT AN OFFICIAL NOBEL PRIZE. The real name of the prize is Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel.

Third, it's only ONE prize, in a field that doesn't require the out-of-this-world abstraction capability.

Call me when a black scientist wins a Nobel prize in physics or chemistry, or a Fields Medal, then, and only then, we'd start thinking about blacks having the benefit of the doubt the hispanics have, with their laureates, the mayas precedent, the Escalante precedent or the superelite chess GMs precedents.

economics is literally regarded as a social science lol. you need many abstract thoughts to compete in a world that studies social trends and patterns in human behaviour explained by environment, culture etc

• crystal rosett says:

brain size doesn’t always equal higher intelligence though, one study compared the brain sizes of people with different iqs and educational achievement, and the person with the highest iq and educational achievements had the lowest brain volume out of everyone. also the average black brain is actually larger than albert einstein’s brain. if the gap was caused by brain size it wouldn’t account for more than up to 0.9 standard deviations
