Romanian people say "the money to the money and the louse to the louse"

I believed that this expression is just a sample of popular wisdom, but recent studies demonstrates that poverty affects us more deeper than we expected.
Let's compare our brain with a computer network that has limited resources. When the network is saturated with signals generated by program which is in an infinite loop the overall system speed decreases and the ability to react decreases.

People suffering from poverty have the same problem, the issues generated by poverty occupy a big part of the processing capacity of the brain so that he can not manage to get even simple tasks, way to find solutions to escape poverty
It seems that poverty is like a disease, sometimes we need the help of the doctor to heal us.
