Friedrich A. von Hayek on Social Minimum - Dictionary of Arguments

Gaus I 124
Social minimum/Hayek/Gaus: A public goods argument can be advanced for general forced donation to the elimination of poverty. Hayek, for example, suggests that a scheme for assistance against severe deprivation is in the interest of all; indeed, he adds that ‘it may be felt a duty of all to assist, within the organized community, those who cannot help themselves’ (1976(1): 87). >Social goods, cf. >Social goods/Minimal state.
