Call 239: Whom Do You Trust?

Walter Cronkite, apparently the most trusted person in the US for many years, has died. This intangible trust thing is vital to healthy societies and economies. We rely on it constantly.

  • What does it mean that you trust someone? What are the boundaries?
  • How does trust develop? How transitive is it really?
