Do we have a duty to help the poor? How do we quantify that?

The productive part of society is in the private sector, i.e. private individuals, private charity groups, the Church, etc.. There IS enough food to go around. I'm sure there are enough other resources, as well. It's just a matter of individuals voluntarily looking to the needs of their neighbors.

If we leave the care of the poor up to the government, on the other hand, you can count on the inefficient allocation of resources, which WILL leave less to go around.
