Trust Continuing to Founder Globally, Edelman Finds

Trust continues in a tarnished state around the world, needing ever more burnishing. That's the main finding in the 2012 Edelman Trust Barometer, based on surveys during 2011 in 25 countries. Government dropped "a record nine points to 43 percent globally....Government officials are now the least credible spokespeople, with only 29 percent considering them credible." Business has its own trust issues, slipping globally from 56% to 53%, with double-digit decreases in the Eurozone countries, Edelman reports. 

You'd think someone in authority, somewhere, would be getting the message in trends like these, and see an opportunity, indeed a requirement, for doing well for world morale.
