This paper discusses and brings together two lines of research on global justice – one on aiding the poor and another on obligations to those in future generations. This is important as almost any way we try to aid the poor will have a significant impact on poor people in future as well as present generations. In surveying the literature, the paper defends a few principles for aiding the poor in present and future generations. It also presents a highly abstract model for testing, and thinking through the consequences of, such principles that might help arbitrate between principles.
