Social Capital Accumulation and the Evolution of Social Partecipation

Social Capital Accumulation and the Evolution of Social Partecipation

Edited by: Angelo Antoci – Università di Sassari, Pier Luigi Sacco – IUAV Venezia, Paolo Vanin – Universitat Pompeu Fabra

We study the co-evolution of social participation and social capital accumulation, taking the view that the former contributes to the latter, and both contribute to the enjoyment of ‘relational goods’. Within this framework, we show that a process of substitution of private for
social activities (observable in some advanced, affluent economies), might be self-reinforcing and lead to a Pareto-dominated steady state.
We find some scope for policy intervention, but we also acknowledge its difficulty.
