2030 - The Mismeasure of Minds: Debating Race & Intelligence b/w Brown & the Bell Curve w/ Michael Staub
First, University of Massachusetts-Lowell professor of economics Bill Lazonick joins Sam to discuss stock buybacks.
Then, Michael E. Staub joins us. With his 1994 book "The Bell Curve," Charles Murray became the most visible proponent of what's now widely understood to be heavily compromised, ideologically driven "science" on race and IQ. But this work of pop science wasn't created in a vacuum. In "The Mismeasure of Minds," Michael E. Staub traces how the 1954 Supreme Court decision Brown v Board of Education set off decades of deeply flawed research around race, class and IQ, the discriminatory effects of which are still being felt to this day.
