The poor have also a vested interest in that the redistribution is done as cost effective as possible, so they get the most out of the redistribution.

PS. In my country Venezuela the poor did not get more than tops 15%, of what would have been their per capita share of some incredible oil revenues. That is why I have had enough of redistribution profiteers to last me several lifetimes. That is why I have defended net oil revenue sharing among all citizens for soon two decades, which is nothing but a (variable) universal basic income funded with oil revenues.
