What To Do?

Read a cool quote today. Here it is paraphrased. "If we are able to redistribute the wealth of the world equally, so that there was no absolute poverty among us, we would still be left with those able to create wealth, and those who after spending their new inheritance, would be right back where they began." It was an interesting thought to me, but troubling for what our actions should then be. Instead of just sending cash overseas, what should we be sending? Farming innovations or the equivalent of? Any thoughts?
