unless i am misunderstanding the question

And just while I was out smoking, this popped up on Roissy In DC:

Hypothetically speaking, if average human population group differences in
aptitude, temperament, personality and decision-making exist and are
immutable over generational timespans, and those group average
differences are greater when the population groups being
compared are larger (i.e. ethnicity versus race), would anything change about
principal economic theories and concepts (e.g. free trade, externalities, free
movement of labor, comparative advantage, public choice theory, opportunity
cost, rationality of players, labor force growth)? If so, how would they change?

And the only thing I can think is that policy will change. The way things work are largely unchangable, unless said population groups are extremely divergent in their collective ideas about how the market operates. Certain taboos will cement themselves more as a population grows -ideas become ingrained after a generation or two.
