The article presents Kurt W. Rothschild comment on the article "The Poverty of Politics: How Income Redistribution Hurts the Poor," by J. R. Clark, G. Tullock, and L. S. Levy. Rothschild's comment rests on an intuitive model with a simple structure which cannot be criticized for being logically wrong, but for the way it is taken as a relevant basis for judging or executing real world anti-poverty programs by means of income redistribution.
