Mason, Patrick (2007). "Social relations and intergenerational mobility: the empirical effects of capabilities and social capital" Paper presented at the 4th annual conference of the HDCA, 18-20 September 2007, New York, USA.

This study combines Sen’s (1992) capability analysis to inequality, Becker’s analysis of intergenerational mobility (1981) and the Glaeser, Laibson, and Sacerdote (2002) theory of social capital accumulation to empirically model market outcomes and social capital as simultaneous individual outcomes.
