Abstract

This article aims to give an overview of changing public perceptions of poverty and attitudes towards the causes of poverty based on my research experience on poverty over the past 35 years. The discussion further explains how and why changing public perceptions of poverty exist in Hong Kong, and discusses the underlying values of Hong Kong’s welfare provisions for tackling poverty.
