3. People don't eat money.

We're looking at it wrong if we think the world can be fed with money.

If the world has the resources to feed the hungry we should be feeding the hungry.

The wealthy are standing in the way of the fact that too many people have too little to eat, but it's the allocation of resources that's the problem and not the distribution of wealth. We aren't looking at money's role in the world properly if we think it takes money to feed people.
