THE ROLE OF SOCIAL CAPITAL IN DEVELOPMENT AID: A FIRST ANALYSIS FOR THE OECD

This paper analyzes the relationship between the level of social capital of a country and its contribution to development aid. Several studies have shown that it can help influence the level of social capital in a country and fewer people have focused on the role of donors and their level of social capital to see if they are related in some way. Given that social capital defined as networks, trust and rules that help the cooperation could be expected that countries with higher levels of capital are actually, which spend a greater proportional amount of development aid. We will start with a brief reference to the concept of social capital and development aid to subsequently perform an analysis of available data and finally present an econometric model that will help us to see if there is any connection between the two magnitudes. The proposed estimate is carried out taking into account the available data of World Value Surveys (WVS), which is estimated in panel data static and a dynamic estimation by Arellano and Bond estimator in 2-stages.
