Also about crime+46It is a very old trope that poverty creates crime, but it's a lie, crime creates poverty. Not only does crime directly destroy wealth as thieves steal expensive goods and sell them for pennies on the dollar, it drives away people who have money, and prevents people from investing money in those areas because your investment is not safe there and neither are you. Without crime, poorer areas are attractive to investors because the cost of property and labor are lower than other areas, so wealth flows in and poverty dissipates. But crime prevents that, it creates and perpetuates poverty. amirite?
