    I think that folks would be able to open up a S&P 500 account with little to no money. But yes folks would need some money to invest.

    It was simply called the IQ test at one time.

    "All military recruits must take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) to qualify for enlistment. The ASVAB is essentially an IQ test (correlation = 0.8)."


    I really hate it when the reporter says something like "you would think <x>" . . . no, no I would not.

    "Or take a study about tank gunners. You might not think a standardized intelligence test would have much effect on the ability to shoot straight."

    Holy cow! It must be crazy hard to fire from a moving target and be able to hit a moving target. Also not a straight line.
