Social Capital meets Social Media
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 precondition
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 invarious forms of social media.
