Urvashi Kaul explores the use of Social Capital Credits, a tool used to reinforce and create grass-roots community networks in cities across the world. She writes about her experiences in Kumasi, Ghana, implementing a program where people perform socially beneficial activities to earn credits that can be redeemed for goods and services. The concept is simple, but Kaul argues Social Capital Credits can help bring about “a redefinition of wealth that takes into account the power of community.”
