The issue of poverty seems to never run out as long as there are still many people who live below the decent line of life. Poverty needs to be overcome by economic development programs that are truly prosperous, but unfortunately this is still a program that seems grandiose, but has not had a significant impact.

This article will examine poverty associated with the concept of welfare economics, focusing on the thinking of the 1998 Nobel laureate who is an Indian-born economics professor, Amartya Sen. His thoughts provide many important bases for equitable economic development.

The welfare economy needs to be sustained by the stronger role of the state. This was done to overcome the economic movements of capitalism which increasingly haunted people's lives in the modern era today. It is hoped that with a welfare economy, poverty can be overcome and people's lives become better.
