New Scales Development: Social Capital

Definition of Interpersonal Promotion: Social Capital

Nakata and Weidner (2012) defined social capital as trust, norms, and networks that can increase the proficiency of society by facilitating coordinated actions (i.e., BOP consumers heavily rely on social networks for information and tangible aid, and for learning from their neighbours what school to send their children to).
