The chapter argues that it makes sense to distinguish the category of 'extreme poverty from other forms of poverty. It examines the political-sociological significance of such a distinction and them makes the argument that the task of addressing extreme poverty requires a different policy response from those devised to tackle poverty. The chapter outlines the case for a new political settlement in Bangladesh able to support a sustained and progressive debate about the intersections between poverty, growth, rights, responsibility and redistribution.
