This article is a review of traditional literature about how business tackles poverty eradication and a later specific discussion of what is left for future research. The result of the review reveals two areas of focus: the traditional approach that looks at poverty as a general problem, and the business perspective that identifies specific causes. The article goes beyond these two approaches to emphasize that although changing the observation angles can help scholars explore other sides of poverty, targeting poverty by one or some of its symptoms can not help break down the mechanism of interacting constraints locking poor victims deep inside. The article argues that research about business for poverty eradication should start from breaking free of established assumptions about poverty such as ‘bottom’ or ‘low buying power’, establishing the construct validity and discussing how to break interacting constraints around poor victims for their escape from the tyranny of poverty.
