24 genes linked to wealth Empty 24 genes linked to wealth

Post Neon Knight on Mon 25 Mar - 23:35

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6845715/Wealth-hard-work-luck-genes-study-suggests.html  Quoting:

Wealth and success may be less to do with hard work or luck and more to do with DNA, it seems. An analysis of 286,000 Britons showed that the genetic make-up of those who earned over £100,000 differed from those on low incomes. A scan pointed to 24 ‘golden genes’ that affect intelligence, the immune system, and the strength of muscles and heart – and so can make the difference between economic success and poverty.

The discovery follows work at the Centre For Cognitive Ageing in Edinburgh.

Three-quarters of the genes are linked to intelligence, the scientists found. But physical attributes also affect the chances of being wealthy and some of these may be inherited.

‘Genetic variants associated with higher income correlate with a genetic predisposition for greater intelligence, a longer lifespan, better physical and mental health, fewer feelings of tiredness, having fewer children and better living conditions,’ the researchers say in a paper which is yet to be published.

I'm sure there are certain character traits that are associated with wealth too, apart from health and intelligence. I mean, I am low energy so I get tired a lot. I'm sure that does play a part on being such an under achiever. I fight these "tiredness" feelings every day. Rolling Eyes

I get something like that too. Others can interpret it as laziness, which is annoying.

The 24 karat golden genes is a genetic lottery.
It is unfortunate for the people that did not inherit any of those genes.
Life is not fair and society has an obligation to care for the have nots. The people that really need the help, like the elderly and handicapped.....that's it.
Young healthy people have no excuse not to work.
It makes me angry sometimes, because I work my tail off, always have.
I often feel tired, but I push through it.

No doubt, if all of America's wealth was redistributed equally, within say 90 years the money would go back to the top 5%

Suppose there was a generation that had undergone genetic modification as embryos so that everyone had those 24 genes. What kind of society would that be?
