Financial inclusion in Australia and the potential of social networks /

by Lu, Justin W | The Australian Sociological Association.

Publisher: unpub. 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Conference paper presented at The Australian Sociological Association (TASA) Conference. Social Causes, Private Lives (2010 : North Ryde, N.S.W.) Bibliography : p. 10-14Summary: The issue of financial exclusion is becoming increasingly prevalent in Australia. The inability to access appropriate and affordable financial products and services from mainstream financial institutions can substantially inhibit an individual's capacity to participate in modern society. While governments have repeatedly turned to the social sphere for solutions to community problems, contemporary interest in questions of inclusion have thus far failed to adequately recognise the utility of networks in promoting financial inclusion. Yet, the idea that social networks have value is not new. Nor are studies of the peer group dynamics and support that enable collective benefits. This paper will argue that harnessing the power of social networks can offer an innovative response to both social and financial exclusion. The way in which networks can be drawn upon to support excluded individuals and encourage participation will also be examinedAvailability: (1)
