IQ and genetics

This is one of the most bizarre and bogus tweets by N. N. Taleb. Why the hell would anyone judge "country IQ" by looking at immigrants in America? One can simply look at the bloody countries!

One can counter that the immigrants in America have been unshackled from the cultural and economic restraints in their home countries. Okay, but what makes you think that these immigrants are even close to the "average" in their own countries? The average Pakistani (IQ = 84) is illiterate. He can't read or write any language. Yet, the average Pakistani in America makes $63,000 a year and, likely, speaks more than two languages. The people who have left the shithole named Pakistan over the previous seven decades were definitely above average in intelligence.
