Poverty, from orthodox to heterodox
AbstractBasedÂ onÂ someÂ methodologicalÂ issuesÂ thisÂ paperÂ triesÂ toÂ compareÂ theÂ followingÂ approaches:Â Â NeoliberalÂ MonetaryÂ andÂ Capability,Â SocialÂ Exclusion,Â ParticipatoryÂ andÂ MarxianÂ SocialÂ StructureÂ ofÂ AccumulationÂ (SSA)Â Â Â inÂ termsÂ ofÂ theirÂ levelÂ ofÂ analysis,Â theirÂ definitionÂ ofÂ povertyÂ andÂ theirÂ recommendedÂ policyÂ actionÂ toÂ tackleÂ poverty.Â Â TheÂ mainÂ conclusionÂ ofÂ paperÂ isÂ thatÂ thereÂ isÂ aÂ consensusÂ amongÂ capability,Â socialÂ exclusion,Â participatoryÂ andÂ SSAÂ approachesÂ inÂ addressingÂ Â poverty;Â theyÂ emphasizeÂ onÂ socialÂ rootsÂ ofÂ poverty,Â onÂ multidimensionalÂ aspectÂ ofÂ poverty,Â onÂ theÂ roleÂ ofÂ unevenÂ powerÂ inÂ gettingÂ toÂ anÂ acceptableÂ socialÂ environmentÂ andÂ alsoÂ onÂ rejectingÂ theÂ currentÂ normativeâ€Â positiveÂ epistemologyÂ inÂ whichÂ povertyÂ becomesÂ asÂ aÂ naturalÂ phenomena.Â Â Â
