Firstly, It develops an encompassing definition of social capital built on social interactions, social norms and trust. Secondly, it argues that social capital affects economic outcomes as a productive input or through TFP, and/or through transaction costs. Thirdly, it surveys some commonly used empirical proxies and discusses their determinants.
