Social capital

Any economics around here?

I have to write a little paper about Social Capital, but I don't know much about so maybe some of you can tell me something about social capital.

Econ... I believe social capital is the same as social gain, which is the total gain to society resulting from trade. It's consumer surplus plus producer surplus.

That's about all I remember from my econ class from hell last semester. Hope that helps any.

"I knew I had it in me. And I knew if I fought hard enough, and I kept fighting, even if I kept falling, I was going to get up and do it."


I'm not going to Rupologize!

Well, in Sociological terms, social capital is anything that you can use to display your class, so university degrees, knighthoods, etc. is seen as social capital...

I'm not sure if it means the same in economics

Well i found out, it's the profit you can gain now or in the future by using your networks. It's a bit vague I think.

The thing you name Daviator is Human Capital.
