Yee haw, ya’ll! Here’s what I rustled up when looking online for some other stuff on social capital and how it correlates to other stuff:
Social capital and income – it really IS who you know! You know more businesses (or people), guess what? You make more bank!
Social capital and philanthropy – the more friends you have, the more likely you are to pony up to the cause…!
Social capital and happiness – well, this blog states the opposite: that Americans are increasingly unhappy because of the drop in social capital. (So, I dare to assume that the opposite could be true: those who are happiest have the highest social capital…?)
Social capital and better government, decreased crime rates, etc. – this paper cites a lot of different studies on increased social capital of citizens and a better city.
Things you can do to increase social capital – this was put together by a foundation…in New Hampshire. Also lists a bunch of reasons why building social capital is a good thing.
Hope to see ya real soon again on the Social Capital Ranch! Ya’ll come back now, ya hear?
