Who do you know? Your connections form part of your social capital; the network, shared values, and mutual understandings that encourage trust, facilitate trade, and make cooperation easier. Henry George noted that trust was a pre-condition to trade. Nobel Prize winning economist Elinor Ostrom regarded social capital, along with physical, human, and natural capital, as essential for growth and development.
In this seminar we review the concept of social capital, study its operation in our world, and consider its expression in various forms of social media.
