How are social ties formed? Interaction of neighborhood and individual immobility
AbstractUsing individual data from Japan, this paper investigates how a neighbor's immobility is associated with individual investment in social capital. It is found that local homeownership has a positive effect on individual investment and that this effect for individual homeowners is about 2.5 times larger than for renters.
