Social Trust In Galicia: An Approach To The Evolution Of Social Capital And Its Determinants


  • Pena López, José Atilano
  • Sánchez Santos, José Manuel


The present work adopts the socioeconomics scope for studying one of the social determinants of economic development. Concretely, it analyses the recent evolution of the Social Capital endowment in the Galician economy. As starting point, we set the boundaries of the concept of Social Capital and their main indicators for extracting the main conclusions of the results of the three waves of the World Values Survey. Secondly, an analysis of the micro determinants of the generalized confidence is developed. We observe a process of decapitalisation in both systems of indicators: trust and asociationism.
