This is misleading, everyone isn't getting stupider. The stupid people are just breeding more. We should just stop exporting our food.

How is it misleading? are you slow? more stupid people = average is lowered. when looking at this I didn't have the thought that people are getting stupider. that would be dumb.

The misleading part is having the entire world involved in the IQ graphic meanwhile only Africa and Europe were in the population graphic.

The average IQ is 100 by definition, so the average IQ won't change, but there may be changes in general cognitive ability. That's actually a hot subject in the IQ literature at the moment.

Smart people are still breeding, they are just doing it at a little over replacement level, they just aren't having 8 kids

This is a short-term effect.

In the long-term, the optimal reproductive strategy is to have as many kids as you can support. In a capitalist society, where intelligence is in demand, the intelligent will be able to support more kids than the unintelligent. The problem is that the majority of intelligent people are currently employing a suboptimal reproductive strategy by intentionally limiting the number of children they have (via birth control). But evolution will catch up, and people will evolve to be averse to birth control.

Historically, the limiting factor on the evolution of intelligence was the increased nutritional demands. Invest more in the brain, consume more energy, need more calories to survive. In a post-scarcity society where food is cheap compared to income, like in Western society, no one is starving to death. So the limiting factor on the evolution of intelligence is all but gone; high IQ in men is associated with reproductive success.

And really, on a global level, societies compete with one another. If some societies foster evolution of higher IQ individuals, and others devolve into idiocracy, the high-IQ societies will out-compete the low IQ societies.

Given that, by definition, average IQ is 100, the trend on the IQ chart will self-normalize. The world will be dumber, but the IQ numbers shouldn't change.

Nah, the "IQ Index" will get adjusted for deflation, therefore it will stay at 100 forever.

You're forgetting about technologies like the CRISPR/Cas 9 which can turn individual genes on and off. The Chinese have poured billions into finding the genes responsible for genius...once they figure that out they will be able to raise an entire generation of supergeniuses!
