The friendliness of the newborn child is the beginning of Social Capital - this fascinating consideration is the highlight of an interview with Professor Pahlaj Moolio from the Paññāsāstra University of Cambodia.

As Moolio explains, non-material assets such as trust, solidarity, helpfulness and as well friendliness have an impact on economy. Examples are the challenges to overcoming poverty, rural development and tourism.

Moolio, who serves as a professor for statistics and an associate dean in the Faculty of Economy, therefore started a test Social Capital Assessment in 6 of the 25 provinces of Cambodia according to the methodology and software of the Basel Institute of Commons and Economics in Basel, Switzerland.

Developing Social Capital therefore is a way for Cambodia, to avoid mistakes made by only focusing on GDP and GNP.

The interview is part of a documentary on the Social Capital of Cambodia produced by the filmmaker Viktor Dill from the Berlin Germany,. The questions were posed by sociologist Hanna Kribbel.
