Reframing poverty and where it is

This article by Andy Sumner (The new bottom billion) makes a good case for reframing the way we consider poverty and its distribution.  An emergent issue from the analysis is that it brings into focus growing income inequlity in all nation states.  Different framings require different policies and actions.  As Sumner argues:

'The new bottom billion has reshaped the demographics of poverty. This calls for a renewed development narrative, one that focuses on inequality and shared responsibility.'
