Abstract

The welfare and social peace are the most important concepts when making policy decisions and investment spending of public resources. Currently both welfare and social peace are compromised by the lack of productive capital and excess of speculative capital, the imbalance between suffering cutbacks labor incomes and speculative capital gains. This autor paper proposes and develops a new way for social impact assessment of public investment in infrastructures, the Social Trace, related to the concept of sustainable development as it was defined by Brundtland report. The creation and operation of public infrastructure and its relation to the right to decent work, GDP, inflation and the unemployment rate is the pillar on which this theory rests.
