Chapter 19: Institution-spanning social capital and its income returns in China
China’s gradual economic reform since 1978 has led to the coexistence of state and non-state sectors. Each sector contains a different kind of resources and opportunities from the other sector.

We examine this question with the assistance of a 2009 survey we conducted in eight Chinese cities.
