    This paper examines the relationship between individuals, analyzing households transfers in time or money with the perceived access to time and money help among relatives. The principal aim of this work is to understand if instances in which the members of a family support a relative can be considered to be an investment in nets and therefore accumulation of social capital; or simply to be altruistic motivations. On the other hand, it analyzes the potential tradeoffs of assistance (money vs time). The study finds that the assitance is explained by the exchange hypothesis. There isn't specialization, the help provided in time and money appear to be substitutes and not complementary.
