In Reply to: Study: Wealthy Horribly Stingy on Charity.... What a surPRISE! posted by Jaq on July 31, 2010 at 7:09 pm:

"Who Really Cares?" by Arthur C. Brooks?

This book discusses charity, including the giving habits of rich vs. poor as you described.

It is surprising who gives to charity and who doesn't.

Just a couple of things I learned:

*that people who believe that the government should provide a particular benefit no longer feel any personal responsibility to help others with that need EVEN IF THE GOVERNMENT IS NOT CURRENTLY PROVIDING THE BENEFIT!

*AND that poor people often give sacrificially to others, UNLESS they are receiving government benefits, even if they are better off then some of the "giving" poor.
