Abstract : Using data from the World Values Survey (WVS) on Singapore and Trinidad and Tobago, we provide empirical evidence on the relationship between social capital and subjective wellbeing. We show that social capital is an important factor in improving quality of life although the effects of social capital, measured by trust and social networks, are more pronounced in Singapore than in Trinidad and Tobago. We argue that the effect of social capital is influenced by the country’s development level.
