AK 01: Values, that are worth fighting for…

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

Perception is reality  especially when dealing with different cultures. Trust is a major issue for anyone doing business. Societies where trust is recognised as an important factor are rewarded with economic growth, prosperity and job growth, all examples of social virtues. Therefore, since it is impossible to measure trust in a society, it is vital to study the mechanisms that promote high levels of business activity by means of trust-related factors. As Hayek stated,  perception is based rather on the reciprocal effect between momentary attractions and experiences which were made in the past in similar circumstances . Consequently, trust is one of the main factors responsible for economic growth.
