Via Kathy Shaidle I see this note on the link between poverty and crime.

"We associate crime with poverty because criminals are so often poor. However, the association is an inversion — people don't become drug-addicted thieves because they're poor— they're poor because they're drug-addicted thieves. "

It's even simpler than that. I can explain the link between poverty and crime in three short words: Crime Doesn't Pay.
