Social capital videos

The following videos might help to explain social capital a bit more. They don’t provide detailed analysis of the term, but rather provide some useful insights to what it means in practice. The first is a brief cartoon by The Council on Quality and Leadership showing some simple ways in which social capital works.

The following are three videos by Noam Osband (who was a PhD student studying anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania) which give a bit more detail. While they  accept social capital uncritically, they are still a helpful introduction.
