This paper reviews the evidence of how the welfare state can shape the relationship between economic inequality and poverty through the channels of taxes, transfers and public good provision. In particular, we examine how the quantity, and to some extent the quality, of resources that can be raised to tackle poverty may be influenced or constrained by high levels of inequality.
