Ending Poverty

Is it possible to end poverty? Could we do it today? If so, should we?

Even if we can't (or won't) do it today, exponential general-purpose molecular manufacturing might make it much easier to achieve. It's worth debating both the objective and the proposed tactics, because someday -- perhaps soon -- we likely will hold the potential in our hands to end poverty. Should we try? If so, what will be the best approach?
