Well, we might have just hung in different poly circles, but the fact that the author brought up the fact that she's an immigrant makes me think of a whole different economic level; there's a reason that many countries are called 'third world'. That being said, as I mentioned earlier, polyamory -can- work for people regardless of their economic situation, particularly if it involves living together; it's much easier to get one more room then it is to get a bachelor's apartment type thing. And then there's all the pooling of resources that can happen as well.
