Fascinating but probably not PC. Whereas my ancestors seem to have been selected for recognizing which potatoes were edible and which not. Though actually, my Irish American mother is classic "Black Irish", so much so that she would frequently be asked in Idaho, which has a large Basque population (imported in the early 20th century to herd sheep, then assimilated very successfully), whether she was Basque. In fact, she could easily pass for Spanish or Basque.
BTW I take back everything I said about Schumpeter not understanding the anti-entrepreneurs. More on this later.
