Social Capital: An Insight Revealed or a Concept Too Many?




Type Of Work


  • Scholarly edition

Abstract


  • An introduction to social capital and a 'state of the art' analysis

    is provided. Attention is drawn to disagreements in use of the term, particularly

    between its innate and planned, individual and collective natures. It is argued

    that no inconsistency exists, rather it is a multifaceted concept. Alternative

    measurement techniques are discussed, along with pointers from historical research,

    and the principal economic effects of social capital. We conclude with recommendations

    for future research directions.
