Chapter 15: Research on social capital and regional development in China: what has been done so far and what should be done in future
The relationship between economic factors and regional development in China has been extensively studied in the last two decades. Little attention has been paid to how social factors (for example social capital) are related to regional development.

The positive impact of social capital is not that obvious currently due to China’s cultural and institutional context.
