Poverty as measured by material deprivation through lack of economic resources remains absolutely central to understanding the causation and patterning of most aspects of social exclusion and a wide range of social outcomes. Concerns are expressed about the implications of trends to greater inequality, marketization and loss of social cohesion, as well as stagnating living standards and increased precarity in the workplace and housing market. While the multi-dimensional perspective combining poverty and social exclusion is shown to be of value the emerging behavioural agenda around poverty requires critical challenge.

Keywords:   Centrality of poverty, Poverty impacts on social outcomes, Growing inequality, Marketization, Living standards, Precarity, Behavioural aspects of poverty, Dimensions of social exclusion
