Public Trust

Me: Mr. Edelman, I have a few questions for you. When did you start the trust barometer? Mr. Edelman: I started the trust barometer in 2001
Me: What was your purpose behind the trust barometer?
Mr. Edelman: I started this trust barometer after our economy started to decline and we were on the brink of a financial collapse and had many trust violations in our country from corporations and CEO’s. The barometer shows the statistics worldwide and it goes to show for this year that the US is dropping very low. Me: Do you see the US climbing back to the top of the charts anytime soon? Mr. Edelman: Absolutely, I believe the US will Gradually climb up towards the top of the statistics! The trust barometer is getting much needed attention and I think that more businesses are taking my key points and pointing them into play with their businesses and institutions.
