The Poor Pay More
Published in English
The Poor Pay More is a 1967 book published by David Caplovitz. It is a sociology study of what could be called the "poverty penalty", which is a concept that poor people pay more for the same goods and services as people with more money do.
In 2010 a researcher cited the book as still being relevant.
