Survey: Trust stable worldwide but dips in US

Trust in business and government worldwide is showing a remarkable resilience, a new survey has found, but in the United States there has been a steady decline.
According to the annual Edelman Trust Barometer, trust in businesses is up two points globally _ led by surges in Brazil and Germany, yet in the U.S., trust of government, corporations and media was down by eight points to just 46 percent.
Edelman Chief Executive Richard Edelman says the report, released Tuesday, shows that recent financial crises have led to more skepticism but adds that such trust is conditional on what a company does and how it communicates.
