Maybe we need to ignore why there is socio- economic generating rich and poor inequality.
I wont a hypothesis that could explain the existence of poverty.
1) Although we are like so many other mammals (dogs, cats, horses), none of the other species suffer so much inequality in the availability of human resources and suffer. Therefore, in addition to differentiate because we talk, we make great buildings and live many years, we also characterize us because there are significant disparities between possession of property;
2) Although there are many species - mammalian or not, they are gregarious (living in larger communities), human function as a whole, ie, we maintain an interaction between individuals that leads us to act as if the species were a large body, which has a head, body, vital organs, circulatory system ;
3) For this condition to form a great body, each of us is involved (inadvertently) exercising any role, either command, execution, management, combat rescue, gestation of new specimens, healing of law, and many others;
4) For this condition to form a large agencies have assigned roles and also have assigned material resources that determine our living conditions. Without that we can even explain it, many must be poor, much less have to be rich and have to have several intermediate possessions. Proportionally, very few individuals migrate from one condition to the other, but we all want wealth and poverty fled.
As in a human body, the circulatory system of the species we assign unequal amounts of blood - cell to each copy.
In short: it works our species. This inequality leads us organic reactions necessary for operation. If we find a satisfactory explanation would suffer material injury because of the vital energy arises from the disagreement and fighting to defend or improve our situation. The misunderstanding of the phenomenon keeps us active. If we understood we would lose that part of the vital energy.
