圖書簡介:
In this collection of essays, contributors debate the definition of social capital—-broadly understood as the effect social networks and shared attitudes can have on economic performance—and ask how the concept can be applied to development policy and analysis.
How do social capital theories help broaden our thinking about development--and how does this hard-to-quantify concept make analyzing development efforts more difficult? What impact do informal social networks have on the state and other formal organizations? What role does trust play within large organizations? These are some of the questions that the contributors debate. They also suggest methods for measuring social capital and offer examples from China, the Czech Republic, India, Italy, the Republic of Korea, Russia, Tanzania, and Ukraine.
The volume is edited by Partha Dasgupta and Ismail Serageldin. Contributors include James Coleman—whose essay helped establish social capital as an organizing concept in the social sciences—as well as Robert Putnam, Robert M. Solow, and Joseph E. Stiglitz. This book will be of interest to anyone seeking a better understanding of social capital and its impact on development efforts.
