Default Re: Robin or no Robin?

Poverty doesn't just disappear with a bit of money. It is much more complex than that. Or to quote Sebastian Blood in Arrow, "Not every problem in this city can be solved with money."

Gotham's problems extend far beyond just high crime rates. It has decades of history of corruption behind the scenes - corruption in the GCPD, in the judges, in the rich and higher classes in general, etc. Those problems won't just go away with a bit of cash. That's why Bruce created the image of the Batman. It was to have a larger-than-life figure that can strike fear into Gotham's criminals and the corrupt. That same level of fear and larger-than-life presence couldn't be replicated by a young normal rich dude bound by the legal limits (well, it can because Bruce is Batman, but you know what I mean ).
