White-Collar Workers Join Crowd Straining Food Banks
by Patrick Cole
While Americans generosity in providing charitable assistance for those "down on their luck," there is a question as to whether this is the appropriate institutional arrangement, or whether it is more appropriate for government to meet the needs of its people.
Some say that this is properly handled by private charity, whereas others object that this takes advantage of the good hearted and provides a free ride for the stingy, arguing that the burden is social and should be part of public purpose, hence, properly the purview of government.
