Il rendimento del capitale sociale e del capitale umano per le giovani generazioni
AbstractYoung employees in Italy work frequentlyin jobs which do not compensate sufficientlythe investment in human capital made bythemselves. Such a phenomenon is due tothe characteristics of the labour demand, andalso to the information asymmetries existingin the labour market. This latest problem canbe overcome by the individual relying on his/her social networks. The article focuses onthe employed population aged 25-34, andillustrates results from a detailed analysis ofthe relationship between social capital, humancapital and income. The main findings show thatin Italy the social background of the individualplays an important role in placing young peoplein well-paid jobs, while those with modest socialorigins have to rely on institutional channels andare therefore placed in low paid and presumablypoor quality jobs.
