Poverty, as a universal problem, has been widely concerned by scholars all over the world. This essay argues how economic growth, distribution policy and other factors affect poverty reduction issues. Firstly, this article will briefly introduce the context of the poverty issue and how economic growth influences poverty reduction. Secondly, two exceptional cases and three non-economic factors will be analyzed to test whether distribution policy and other factors can also influence or dismiss poverty. Finally, this article will conclude that rapid economic growth is good for poverty alleviation but not all the needs. The distribution policies and other non-economic factors may also influence the link between economic growth and poverty reduction.
