  • Achyles Barcelos da Costa
  • Beatriz Morem da Costa


Clusters have their economic performance based in the form of its industrial organization and in the existence of institutions and social relationships in its interior. The established connections in the agglomerate are constituted of a kind of asset - social capital - and that it produces economics gains, besides those obtained from the division of labor. However the concepts of industrial districts and of social capital still lack larger precision, as well as it have been varying the dimensions and the social unit to which the concept of social capital is applied. Explicit the conceptual controversy is an important task to organize study of co-operation in local productive arrangements and, also, in the identification of the factors that are in the base of the different co-operation levels found among enterprises belonging to these productive arrangements.
