WHY WE TRUST: The social instinct: why we trust -- Reciprocity, indirect reciprocity, and what we can learn from Hector Ramirez -- How we trust: the lessons of Clark Rockefeller -- Can we trust again? Learning from Rwanda. HOW WE CAN IMPROVE TRUST: Teams: "Go on faith and knowledge" -- The economy: the art of trustworthiness -- Government: trusting the tax man -- Politics: "Encourage you to be nasty" -- Technology: communication, community, and couchsurfing -- Path forward: sometimes we need to leap.
Explores how we trust, why we trust, and what we can do to deepen social trust. Draws on research and events in divergent parts of the world to show how trust can improve our lives, rebuild our economy and strengthen society. Relates tales about trust, such as how a man brought honesty to a corrupt city in Latin America.
