“More trust is not an intelligent aim in this life”

Between the financial crises, global unrest and the precarious nature of personal privacy it seems that trust is declining. But that, according to Onora O’Neill, may not be true and -- even if it were -- may not be a problem. In this understated and rich talk, Baroness O’Neill breaks down our assumptions about the value of trust, asking us instead to focus on trustworthiness and the vulnerability it takes to earn it.
