Why do poor people make stupid, illogical decisions to buy status symbols? For the same reason all but only the most wealthy buy status symbols, I suppose. We want to belong. And, not just for the psychic rewards, but belonging to one group at the right time can mean the difference between unemployment and employment, a good job as opposed to a bad job, housing or a shelter, and so on.

Basically, yes, multiple studies have said that people who are poor make poor fiscal decisions.  In aggregate, the studies haven't said that the decisions drive the poverty, rather that all people, even those who are ordinarily affluent, tend to make poor decisions when they are suddenly rendered poor (even when it's in a game and they know it's a game).
