An Overview of Social Capital: Towards an Understanding of the Normative Principles of Solidarity of Finance
The search for a development approach centered on people’s freedom and people’s participation, this paper argues, can be aided by a study of social capital. Such a study can help explain how people can be mobilized to participate in producing a collective good through voluntary joint action and cooperation with other sectors of society. In other words, a study of social capital formation is essential in shaping a freedom-centered, participatory development perspective.
