Abstract

MONTANO, Carlos. Poverty, "social issue" and its confrontation. Serv. Soc. Soc. [online]. 2012, n.110, pp.270-287. ISSN 0101-6628.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-66282012000200004.

We aim at questioning the various concepts of poverty and "social issue" in the liberal tradition, and their typical ways of confrontation, in the context of the classical liberalism in the ­nineteenth century, of the keynesianism, in the twentieth century and of the neo-liberalism from the current crisis of the capital. Doing so, we offer a reflection concerning aspects related to a historical and critical characterization of poverty and "social issue". Finally, we question the ways of reducing social inequality, through compensatory policy in the current context.

Keywords : Poverty; Social issue; Inequality.
