One way to overcome poverty would be to have shorter work-week, living wages, high taxes on income from investments [no one should be able to live on investment income: everyone should work].
Jesus did not teach that some people should have so much food and so much clothing that he/she could give some of it away as a charitable act. I know, yes, he said that one should give to the poor....but he did not advocate the "rightness" of unequal income/wealth.
