Part # 3 Financial capital

Forms of financial capital  Equity, i.e. money from owners.  Debt, i.e. money from lenders.

Financial capital refers to an individual’s total saved assets, while human capital refers to the individual’s future potential savings from income earned.[1].pdf

Actively reallocating corporate resources is important in the best of times, and even more so during economic downturns. There’s something like a 4 percentage-point difference in the average return to shareholders year on year for those who are in the top third of reallocators versus those in the bottom third.

Although companies' percentage of intangible assets, for example research & development, has increased, accounting rules have not kept pace.

Part # 4 Human capital

A Professional competencies

What do you do well? What will you let other people do? Example:

Intangible assets are estimated to account for up to 80% of the value of large companies today. Thus, people contribute to businesses more than any other factor of production.

Human capital is the only company resource that supplies the organization with the ability to create ideas, relationships, knowledge and models. Every other financial, physical and cultural resource depends on the active mental, social and psychological talent necessary to fulfill it. Source Poppler, Paul & Stark, Ernest: Rare and Inimitable: Creating Human Capital Advantage. Chief Learning Officer, May 1, 2010.

Human capital can be increased by investing in education and health care.

Part # 5 Social / cultural capital

Aspects of social / cultural capital  Shared values and behaviour.  Relationships, for example with customers, suppliers, and other business partners.  Communities.$FILE/ EY_'Capital'%20in%20Integrated%20Reporting%20April%202013.pdf

Social capital is generated by the connections in a social network, and the trust, reciprocity, and resource-sharing qualities of those connections. It can be activated by individuals to gain social support or social leverage, or by collectivities to facilitate organization and collective action. Social capital is commonly viewed as a positive resource, but can become negative when used to exclude outsiders.

For production workers, productivity is readily measured in terms of units of output; for transaction workers, in operations per hour. But for knowledge workers, what might be thought of as collaboration productivity depends on the quality and quantity of interactions occurring.

Results of a study about entrepreneurs in 2 industries, cosmetics and high-tech, show a relation between social competence and financial success. Source Baron, Robert A., Markman, Gideon D.: “Beyond social capital: The role of entrepreneurs' social competence in their financial success.” Journal of Business Venturing, Januar 2003.

Social capital plays a role by  reducing the costs and risks of transactions,  increasing the opportunities for trade, and  leading to greater economic efficiency. Source Castiglione, Dario & Van Deth, Jan W.: The Handbook of Social Capital, p. 375.
