What is Social Capital?
?

Some core dimensions
networks social norms social trust

Author
Baker (1990) Bourdieu (1986)

Definition of Social Capital
A resource that actors derive from specific social structures and then use to pursue their interests The aggregate of the actual or potential resources which are linked to possession of a durable network of more or less institutionalized relationships of mutual acquaintance or recognition

Coleman A resource for action embodied in relations among (1988) persons, which emerges from closure in the social Putnam (1995) Burt (1992)
structure and is convertible to other forms of capital. Features of social organization such as networks, norms, and social trust that facilitate coordination and cooperation for mutual benefit.

Friends, colleagues, and more general contacts through whom you receive opportunities to use your financial and human capital

Author
Lin (2000)

Definition of Social Capital
conceptualized social capital as "(1) quantity and/or quality of resources an actor can access or use through; (2) its location in a social network."

Social capital is related with resources concerning trust, reciprocity and network etc.

My views on Social Capital
?

Beneficial social network resource with trust, norms and reciprocity, which can be sorted by social linking ways into the following two types: “Bonding”: social network that based on the “geo ties” or “relative ties” eg. Close relatives, village fellows “Bridging”: Newly bridged social network that based on “Bridging diverse social circle” eg. Newly Homogeneous friends, and peers, etc.

Social trust
?

personalized trust
from repeated interpersonal interaction

?

generalized trust
from general knowledge about the population of agents, the incentives they face, and the upbringing they have received eg. invoicing for goods they have delivered. Generalized trust yields more efficient outcomes than personalized trust.

Social trust (continued)
eg. Interpersonal trust in the systems of mails. Systematic trust for banking systems.

Reciprocity
Social trust and public goods provision Delivering public goods via voluntary organizations depends critically on local trust and leadership in the community.

Social capital and development
The absence of social capital represents one of the major impediments to economic development (Controversial) Case1. Italy. Northern Italy developed faster than Southern Italy because the former was better endowed in social capital -measured by membership in groups and clubs. facilitate the solution of collective action problems. Case2. U.S. Putnam (2000), focusing on the U.S. experience since the 1950's, argues social capital, defined as membership in formal and informal clubs, has declined monotonically since the 1950’s. No relationship between the speed of the decline of social capital and economic performance across U.S. states or across time periods.

More than 262 million rural-urban migrants in the end of 2012.
Data source: NBSC,2013

Background in China
Population of migrant workers has been increasing. The Wages are ascending. ? Divides between the migrants and the locals. Social status divides Economic status divides ? The average wage of migrant workers is much lower than that of the local workers.
?

China Now Has the Third Highest Labor Costs in Emerging Asia

Controversial conclusions
The role of Social capital in increasing wage of ruralurban migrant workers

(1)Non-significant (weak) effects:
Zhang and Lu, 2009

(2)Significant effects:
Knight and Yueh, 2008…

(3)Heterogeneous social capital has positive effect to the wage
Homogeneous social capital has no positive effect to the wage

My views on the above controversies
?

Definition and classification of social capital Ye and Zhou(2010): Original; New number of schoolmates、number of relatives with Beijing Hukou, Introduction through relatives and friends(Original); ration of expenditure for gathering with friends to total income, gathering, sending gifts(New) Zhang and Lu(2009): sending gifts et al. My views on classification: “Bonding” and “Bridging”

Which sort of social capital has a larger improvement effect to the wage? Bonding vs. Bridging Surveying samples and estimating approaches are various Ordered dependent variable Why choose this sort of variable: (1) Trying to get exact various income source. eg. bonus, subsidy, accommodation funds included in wage or not. (2) Trying to relax interviewees

Data
?

4 cities of the Pearl River Delta in China
July-August, 2010. Survey in Guangzhou, Dongguan, Shenzhen, Zhuhai. The four cities attracted the largest number of migrant workers working within the whole China. 1,339 migrant workers were interviewed, of which 1,034 responses were effective, indicating a ratio of over 77% effective questionnaires.

Survey location: Guangzhou, Dongguan, Shenzhen, Zhuhai

Robustness and Endogeneity
Robustness test
Consistency of results using Parametric Estimation & Semiparametric Estimation

Endogeneity
(1) There is no literature on how to solve the endogeneity problem of ordered probit semiparametric estimation with sample selection model currently (2) Weak endogeneity

My research conclusions
Social capital is important for migrants to earn a high level of wage. ? Both the “bridging” and the “bonding” social capital have significantly positive effects on the wage of migrant workers. ? But the former has a larger effect in upgrading the wage than the latter does.
?

Concluding remarks and policy implications
?

Social capital plays a complicated role to economic performance and community development. Constructing harmonious and friendly enterpriseinternal social relationship has positive contributions to the improvement of wages. Enhancement of urban community harmonization should be beneficial for migrants to expand their social ties from “bonding” to “bridging.
