Henry George summed it all up in one sentence in his book Social Problems:

"There is in nature no reason for poverty."

Poverty is man-made, and the only agency with the power to create massive
poverty is government.
Hunger can be nature-made in a primitive isolated farm economy that
has a drought, but this is not the massive global poverty that cannot
be due to nature, since nature provides more than enough resources.
Read *Progress and Poverty* for starters.
