This morning Edelman released their findings from their 2010 Trust research. They found that trust in U.S. business was up 18% from last year. That brought trust in U.S. business to 54%, still behind Sweden (76%), Canada (76%), and Germany (75%), but trending positive. The jump coincides with an increase in trust for the U.S. Government which increased 16%. Edelman credits the increase in trust to an increased candor by CEOs and a commitment to transparency by companies over the last year.
