An Endogenous Growth Model with Human and Social Capital Interactions
Social capital has recently been introduced in the economic literature as a growth factor. In this paper we study the interactions between social and human capital, and their contributions to economic growth in an endogenous growth model. In particular, we are interested in comparing the results from our theoretical framework with the empirical evidence already found by other authors. The model indicates a correlation between human and social capital throughout time, as suggested by the data. Further- more, an increasing in the relative importance of human capital when compared to social capital is always evident throughout the development process of the economy.
