The Creation And Destruction Of Social Capital: Entrepreneurship, Co-Operative Movements And Institutions by Gunnar and Gert Svendsen, applies the authors' scholarship in economics to scrutinize social capital as the "forgotten" production factor, in addition to physical, financial and human capital. Exploring how social capital is created and destroyed, in a combination of political science, economics, anthropology, sociology, and history, The Creation And Destruction Of Social Capital delves into case studies and notes that some of the most brilliant entrepreneurs were as motivated by social incentives as by the hunger for financial reward. A welcome contribution to scholarly economic and public policy debates, The Creation And Destruction Of Social Capital is written for advanced students yet offers insights critical to better understanding micro and macro economics alike.
