Community Building is Bullshit[edit]

Sounds like some shallow buzzword to me. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.85.250.135 (talk) 11:00, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Leadership, geography, history, socio-economic status all are traditionally used to explain success of community and its well-being. Robert Putnam in his book Bowling Alone finds that a community's well-being is dependent on the quality of relationships among the citizens of that community. He refers to this as social capital. Social capital creates a sense of belonging thus enhancing the overall health of a community.jnewguy 22:50, 18 April 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jnewguy (talkcontribs)
