概要 This study examines the impact of social capital on the poverty of rural households in
eastern Bhutan by employing a simultaneous equation model of two-stage probit least
squares (2SPLS). This study reveals that social capital positively contributes to poverty
reduction and the impact is much higher than that of education. Rural people appear to be
compensating for their lack of education by banking on social capital.
