|Title:||Trust in Experts: Why and Why Not?||Authors:||Baghramian, Maria||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/11478||Date:||Nov-2019||Online since:||2020-08-18T10:00:26Z||Abstract:||We are faced with a profound crisis of social trust, or so we hear on a daily basis from all those with a public megaphone. We don’t trust our politicians because they repeatedly fail to keep their promises or act in good faith, the media, we think, do not give honest and unbiased reports, and as to the experts, we don’t trust them because they are on the side of the elites and are motivated by sectional interests. Not the same level or variety of trust is at stake in all these cases, but their common denominator is the experience that those who expect trust from the public do not act in the public’s interest and therefore are not worthy of our trust.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Jericho Chambers||Journal:||Jericho Times||Issue:||Autumn 2019||Start page:||21||End page:||23||Copyright (published version):||2019 Jericho Chambers||Keywords:||Experts; Expert advice; Trust; Democracy||Other versions:||http://jerichochambers.com/category/populocracy/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed|
