The Development of the Conception of Economic Inequality. I. Descriptions and Comparisons of Rich and Poor People.
Leahy, Robert L.
Child Development, v52 n2 p523-32 Jun 1981
Children and adolescents from four social classes were asked to describe rich and poor people and to indicate how the rich and the poor are different from and similar to each other. Responses were classified into three categories of person description: peripheral (possessions, appearances, and behavior), central (traits and thoughts), and sociocentric (life chances and class consciousness).
