4Capital and Performance


By Dr. Alex Liu





Social capital reflects the value of social networks, which is often evaluated by internal trust and friendships among members, plus external reputation for any individual or organization. 

A lot of research has confirmed the existing huge impacts of social capital on individuals' health, organizational performance and national development.

The World Bank as well as many well known organizations have developed methods to measure social capital.
