capital & the firm organizational capital = tangible + intangible capital intangible capital metaphors – human – social economic value as defining human capital – educational inputs, training, self-education – investment costs to be offset – revenue generated (a retrospective metric) – capability (a prospective metric) Solow, Schultz, Becker – gap between growth and tangible investment – macro versus micro views – learning curve, returns to formal education Apr - 16 - 08KM Brown Bag3
social capital Putnam, Coleman, Bourdieu – ‘bowling alone’, social transactions costs – who accesses with what results – who owns, protects and excludes learning – socialization – institutionalization – individuation social capital as ‘supersession’ of market forces human capital as what individuals bring to market transactions interplay of human and social capital organizational capital = that which firm owns reciprocal obligations economic value from tangible resources + human/social capital Apr - 16 - 08KM Brown Bag4
