Quais instituições e práticas poderiam melhorar
o capital social?
Isabela – “Doesn't social capital impacts society negatively because of the hostility towards those who are not part of the circle of trust?”
Camilla – “Francis Fukuyama in the article “Social Capital and Civil Society” states that “the area where governments probably have the greatest direct ability to generate social capital is education”, and in my opinion, in Brazil this could not be different. The country has an alarming educational deficit, but it still has a huge growing potential as a nation. I believe that educational projects, developed by the middle class in partnership with the government, have the power to transmit the social capital through norms to the future generations.”
Felipe Granato – “According to Paulo de Tarso Sanseverino (a minister from ‘Supreme Court’, STJ), Brazil faces three crisis nowadays. The first is economic, the second is political and the third is ethical.”
Thaiz – “As Bruno de Pieri said in his post, It’s common knowledge that cases of nepotism and neopatrimonialism became something ordinary in the brazilans parties. Therefore, it’s possible to say that there is “social capital” in the politics system.”

KNACK, S.; KEEFER, P. Does Social Capital Have an Economic Payoff? A Cross-Country Investigation. The Quarterly Journal of Economics, v. 112, n. 4, p. 1251–1288, 1 nov. 1997.

This paper presents evidence that “social capital” matters for measurable economic performance, using indicators of trust and civic norms from the World Values Surveys for a sample of 29 market economies. Memberships in formal groups—Putnam's measure of social capital—is not associated with trust or with improved economic performance. We find trust and civic norms are stronger in nations with higher and more equal incomes, with institutions that restrain predatory actions of chief executives, and with better-educated and ethnically homogeneous populations.
