Institutional Incentives and Trust: Marginalized Groups and the Creation of Trust in Local Government

Abstract

There is an important theoretical debate concerning whether institutional trust can be created. Since very few governments actually try to promote trust directly, it has been difficult to test this debate empirically. To investigate this debate, we examine an innovative new program in Japan that is specifically designed to promote trust in institutions-community currencies.
