A number of sociological trends are fueling the drop in social capital.
These include the rise of online activism, the rise in “smart” technology, and the increasing influence of robots, AI, and social media on work and life.
A report from the Pew Research Center says the rise has occurred as Americans have become more disconnected from traditional institutions and the social networks that underpin them.
It notes that a significant number of American adults lack formal formal social ties.
The rise in social distance, combined with an increasing emphasis on personal networks, has increased the chance that Americans will spend time with people they are not related to.
And that in turn has increased people’s chances of spending time with strangers.
“We’re not getting out in the world,” one sociologist told the Wall Street Journal.
But the social distance and the isolation are not limited to college students.
A new study by the Economic Policy Institute shows that while the drop-off in social trust is particularly pronounced among college students, it is also evident among those without a high school degree.
It also suggests that the drop has been occurring even faster among college graduates than those who have only a high-school degree.
“The most striking thing is that college grads have been dropping out of the workforce for years,” the study’s author, Andrew McAfee, told Vox.
“They’re not doing much work and they’re not looking for work, which means they are less likely to have the same opportunities to earn money, to start businesses, and to find a career.”
This is particularly true among the under-40 generation.
In 2015, nearly three out of four college grad households reported that they were no longer working, the study found.
That number is projected to rise to nearly three-quarters by 2030.
This disconnect between college and work also holds true for the working poor.
According to the Economic Mobility Project, nearly half of the working-age population, or 4.4 million people, are working part-time, with just 7.5 percent working full-time.
This means that fewer Americans are earning enough to support their families.
“It’s very clear that the working classes are not getting any better,” one researcher told the New York Times.
And these trends are not only occurring in the US.
“A lot of countries are also experiencing these kinds of shifts,” the EPI’s McAfee said.
For example, a new report from Global Financial Integrity finds that the proportion of the population working full time in the developed world is falling.
The report finds that, from 2014 to 2020, the share of the world’s working population working part time has fallen by almost a third, from 35 percent to 22 percent.
“That is an enormous amount of people being part-timers,” a senior economist at the IMF told the Times.
The authors of the EPRI report also note that the growing gap between rich and poor in developing countries is the main driver behind the drop.
The EPI researchers note that while inequality in the United States has increased over the past 20 years, inequality in India and Brazil has also increased.
They note that “most countries in the developing world have experienced a massive increase in inequality, with countries like China and India seeing the biggest increases.”
That may be due in part to their rapid economic growth.
According the EPPI, China and Brazil saw an average of 2.2 percent and 1.6 percent increases in income inequality, respectively, between 2000 and 2020.
In India, it was 0.8 percent and 0.6, respectively.
The researchers point to a number of factors behind this, including the fact that poor people tend to live in cities and tend to rely on public assistance programs that are often poorly funded.
This is why they are more likely to be unemployed and to live at home with their parents, and thus have lower economic mobility.
The Economic Policy Initiative found that people with higher incomes tend to hold more power in the economic decision-making process, and therefore tend to make decisions on how to spend money.
This, in turn, means that when people are given the choice, they tend to allocate more of their time to consumption.
And this is a process that can affect how they spend money, the EEPI authors said.
“If we want to understand the economic consequences of this, we need to understand how people use their time and how their consumption is structured,” McAfee told Vox in an interview.
The study also found that the United Kingdom is particularly vulnerable to the drop of social capital, given its history of social division and inequality.
According an analysis from the University of Warwick, the UK’s inequality rate has increased by an average 3.3 percent per year since 2010.
The number of households headed by someone from another country has increased from 5.3 to 9.2 per cent.
This has resulted in an average increase in income of around 8 percent per household.
“I don’t know that it is an accident that we have a country where inequality
