Dalai Lama: “The poor need to work harder”

In this video, the Dalai Lama was asked about choosing between Marxism/Socialism and Capitalism, and about closing the gap
between the rich & poor. His view is that the poor need to work harder. The audience was some of the world’s wealthiest people in Aspen, Colorado. Why didn’t the Dalai Lama encourage generosity towards the poor? I guess that’s just another question for “His Holiness”.
