We should be paying attention to the Edelman Trust Barometer [a measure of how citizens perceive governments, business, NGOs, etc.] … They do a big survey; 34 000 participants in 28 countries.

Davos is a pretty depressing place, as a South African… We used to have a very dominant position. This year we’re barely here! South Africa is at risk of becoming irrelevant… We’re so far behind the curve in terms of the adult conversation leading the world right now… We’re in the kindergarten sandpit throwing sand in each other’s faces while all the other kids are doing their MBAs!— Bruce Whitfield, The Money Show
