Producing and Consuming Trust
Eric M. Uslaner challenges the accepted wisdom about trust. He argues that group membership and informal socializing do not depend on trust and do not create trust. He establishes categories of trust and discusses the consequences of each type for civic engagement. This author also explores why Americans have become less trusting over time, emphasizing the role of religious fundamentalism, growing pessimism, and rising economic inequality.
