Introduction This is a post in the on-going series of comments on studies of international/transracial adoption. A global genetic/hereditarian model of cognitive differences and their socioeconomic effects implies that adoptees from different populations/countries/regions should show the usual group differences in the above mentioned traits and outcomes, all else equal. All else is of course not equal since adoptees from different regions can be adopted at different ages, experience different environment leading up to the adoption, possibly experience different environments after adoption thru no cause of their own (discrimination), and so on. It is not a strict test: finding the usual group differences can be explained by non-genetic factors, and finding no differences or unexpected ones could be consistent with a genetic model given strong non-genetic effects such as differences in adoption practices between origin countries/regions/populations. However, were such differences to be found relatively consistently in sufficiently powered studies, it would be an important prediction verified by the genetic model, broadly speaking. The question thus remains: what do the studies show?
