Abstract

Il ruolo dei valori familiari nel determinare gli esiti economici e sociali è molto dibattuta all’interno delle scienze sociali. Un filone della letteratura individua nei legami familiari un freno allo sviluppo economico e alla diffusione di valori civici all’interno dei membri di una società (il cosiddetto “familismo amorale”). Una visione alternativa individua nei legami familiari un fattore importante per la formazione del “capitale sociale” su cui le società fondano i valori civici e le istituzioni politiche. In questo contesto, i legami familiari e l’appartenenza degli individui ad una rete di relazioni di parentela con altri componenti del clan familiare, rafforzando la creazione di valori sociali e culturali, favoriscono il funzionamento economico e scoraggiano comportamenti opportunistici o di free riding rispetto al bene pubblico. Questo lavoro rivisita la letteratura teorica ed empirica sul ruolo della famiglia e dei legami familiari nel contesto economico.
