How the Poor Still Pay More:
A Reexamination of Urban Poverty in the Twenty-First Century
 

Friday, April 7, 2017 
11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Fordham Law School
150 West 62nd Street
Moot Courtroom (1st floor)
Inspired by David Caplovitz’s The Poor Pay More, this year’s Symposium explores how costs of living prevent upward mobility for low-income city dwellers. Caplovitz examined the systemic trends keeping underprivileged New Yorkers in poverty. The fiftieth anniversary of his work is an opportunity to reassess his provocative predictions. We will examine how the urban poor still struggle to afford the essentials—food, healthcare, housing—and how consumer financing and the criminal justice system intensify their struggle.
