US$ 115.00
This book brings together an interdisciplinary group of leading experts to examine three major concepts: social capital, socially responsible behavior of economic agents and economic development. The volume studies the interplay of these issues by employing two original approaches. A micro perspective based on behavioural economic theory and game theory, focusing in particular on the relationship between social capital and corporate social responsibility (CSR) and how these support the creation of self-sustaining networks of cooperative relations. In addition to this, it provides a macro perspective on the relationship between social capital, norms of ethics and economic development.
 
Part I concerns new perspectives on the economic theory of institutions and explains CSR in terms of reciprocity, social preferences and conformity to social norms. Part II presents the approach to social capital and CSR based on behavioral game theory and network analysis. Part III illustrates experimental and empirical evidence concerning the economic effects of social capital and other-regarding preferences. Part IV discusses the macro approach to social capital and sustainable economic development.
 
This book is an essential reading for all interested in social capital, corporate social responsibility, economic development and their mutual relationships as they are seen through the lens of the economic theory of institutions, behavioral economics and game theory.
