Looks like about 2% of us can handle the "food" issue. And I am not convinced that enough adequate housing does not already exist to provide everyone with decent accommodation.

Seems like we are currently devoting about %95 of our efforts towards "luxuries". Maybe we could do just fine easing off of that a little.
A farmer growing food in Nebraska doesn't put food in your belly. What puts food in your belly is you, or someone working on your behalf, producing something of value to the farmer and trading it for food.

But even so, the answer to Rolfe's question is that some people do have to produce something, in order for this to work.
