Goldberger and Manaski critique Herrnstein and Murray's "The Bell Curve" from an economics perspective, articulating flaws in the study's empirical analysis as well as its reliance on insufficient anecdotal evidence. Among their arguments is that Murray and Herrnstein are "obsessed" with using NLSY data and that NLSY regressions offer "no meaningful empirical evidence on the dynamic of American society" as it pertains to the claims of "The Bell Curve."
