Im Allgemeinen gelten mindestens diejenigen als arm, die über so geringes Einkommen verfügen, dass bei ihnen ein Anspruch auf öffentliche Leistungen zur Armutsbekämpfung besteht. Demgegenüber argumentiert eine Reihe von Finanz- und Sozialpolitikern, dass die Empfänger von Sozialleistungen nicht als arm angesehen werden dürfen, da deren Armut mittels einer großen Menge von Steuergeldern bekämpft wird. Ein weiterer Bestandteil des Armutsdiskurses betrifft die Entwicklungstendenz. Während das überwiegend ökonomisch und liberal geprägte Lager die Meinung vertritt, das Fortschreiten von Armut würde dramatisiert werden und hätte seit den 1990er Jahren wenig zugenommen, pocht die zumeist sozialdemokratisch sowie hyperlinks ausgerichtete competition auf eine Ausbreitung sozialer Ungleichheit bei gleichzeitiger Verfestigung der Armut.
