In the context of the global crisis, 'trust' is an important concept to master. With untrustworthy governments, corporations, and financial institutions, the world seems to be a low-trust environment. It has been shown that high-trust environments are more productive and satisfying. Higher trust increases energy and joy and therefore prosperity, argue Covey and Link. The book creates a framework for viewing trust and goes in depth on the judgement required for 'Smart Trust'.
