ABSTRACT
This paper has two main objectives. Firstly, it intends to investigate the impact of the inclusion of the spiritual domain into the management of poverty; secondly, it attempts to construct, from the findings of the investigation, a new form of poverty management. Both objectives rely on the premise that the current mainstream management of poverty has so far missed the spiritual dimension of the poor. In consequence, measurements of poverty and solutions to it are predominantly based on an incorrect concept of poverty, hence the failure in identifying the real root cause, and subsequently in prescribing precise solutions to it. It will be shown that in the new form of the management of poverty, poverty is indeed an outcome of a selective process based on the state of their spiritual beings.
