    Based on some methodological issues this paper tries to compare the following approaches: Neoliberal Monetary and Capability, Social Exclusion, Participatory and Marxian Social Structure of Accumulation (SSA) in terms of their level of analysis, their definition of poverty and their recommended policy action to tackle poverty. The main conclusion of paper is that there is a consensus among capability, social exclusion, participatory and SSA approaches in addressing poverty; they emphasize on social roots of poverty, on multidimensional aspect of poverty, on the role of uneven power in getting to an acceptable social environment and also on rejecting the current normative-positive epistemology in which poverty becomes as a natural phenomena.  Â
