Onora O'Neill's timely new work highlights a great paradox: in order to inspire trust, we, the public, require more accountability, more transparency. But the more we learn about our financial institutions, our politicians, our medical practitioners, our clergy, and many other people who have a direct effect on our lives, the less willing we are to trust them. Their word is doubted, their motives questioned. Whether real or perceived, this crisis of trust has a debilitating impact on society and democracy. Can trust be restored by making people and institutions more accountable in a modern democracy? Or do complex systems of accountability and control damage trust? O'nora O' Neill challenges current approaches to accountability, investigates sources of deception in our society and re-examines questions of press freedom. |L O'Neill presented these ideas this spring as a part of the BBC Radio 4's reith Lectures. Established in 1948, the Reith Lectures are presented to advance public understanding about significant issues of contemporary interest. Previous lecturers include Bertrand Russel, Robert Oppenheimer, and J.K. Galbraith.

Philippa has returned to Glen Maraich and put together a 'portfolio career' - working in the local hotel, catering and house-sitting. She has her little cottage and her friends, and is perfectly content. The last thing on her mind is a new romance, but when a stranger comes to the glen, she finds herself strongly attracted to him. Jon is a prickly character, a mercenary soldier (though he keeps that a secret), and causes suspicion in the close-knit Highland community. They are protective of Philippa, and anxious that she not be hurt. But the unlikely couple find they have more in common than it would appear, and liking progresses cautiously towards love. Though not before a series of misunderstandings threatens to ruin the relationship - unless these two wounded people can learn to trust each other.

When Jack Merrill becomes earl Haddington inheriting not only a title but the devastating debt that came with it, his friends convince him that there is nothing for it but to gain quick wealth the really old fashioned way…marry into it! On the hunt for a wealthy bride, Jack stumbles upon Kitty Hayes, the sister of his former target Evelyn. To him, Kitty is everything Eve was not to him – full of a fire and spirit that challenges him but also everything Eve was as well – a wealthy heiress. But Kitty is a married woman! Can he wait it out until she finds her freedom while reeling her in with friendship and seduction so that he might cast his net about the wealthy heiress the moment her divorce is final? After years of marriage with an abusive husband, Kitty Hayes flees Boston hoping to find protection and anonymity with her sister, Eve MacKintosh, now countess Glenrothes in Scotland, while she petitions for a divorce from the man who has made her life a living hell. Mistaken for her sister, Kitty encounters Jack Merrill who seeks friendship, he claims, but Kitty knows what he is hoping for! Certain that she will never marry again and certainly not expecting such a thing from an inveterate womanizer like Jack Merrill, Kitty negotiates a deal with Jack that if he can wait until her divorce is complete, she will give him the money he desires if in return he becomes her lover! Seeing everything he desires falling into place, Jack agrees to a bargain that is to him a complete win/win scenario that leaves him free of dreaded matrimony. But when Kitty’s life is threatened by her former husband and their 'bargain' suddenly becomes much more complicated, can Jack just stand aside and let this woman walk out of his life forever?

US-China Relations in the Twenty-First Century

The relationship between the United States and China will be of critical importance to the world throughout the twenty-first century. In the West China’s rise is often portrayed as a threat and China seen in negative terms. This book explores the dynamics of this crucial relationship. It looks in particular at what causes an international relationship to be perceived negatively, and considers what can be done to reverse this, arguing that trust is a key factor. It goes on to discuss US and Chinese rhetoric and behaviour in three key areas – climate change, finance, and international security. The book contends that, contrary to much US rhetoric, China’s actions in these areas is often much more flexible and accommodating than the US position, and that the Chinese are much more knowledgeable about, and understanding and appreciative of, the United States than vice versa.

The Crucial Nature of Trust in Business, Work and Life - And How to Build It

Trust is the mandate for making so many important decisions in our lives - from our choice of partner to the brand of car we drive and the neighbourhood we choose to live in. In business, trust is central to success: it leads to employee commitment and motivation; it allows people to take risks and so encourages innovation; and it increases customer loyalty. And yet, despite its value, companies are more likely to lose trust than gain it. Trust can be tough to define, complex to understand and hard to achieve, but the payoffs are exceptional. This critically acclaimed book clarifies the value of trust within a company and the costs incurred when trust is gone. The authors describe the anatomy of trust and explain (using fascinating examples) how trust is built within the company and how it's developed with customers. This is an important management book for an age when trust really does matter.

Schnelligkeit durch Vertrauen

die unterschätzte ökonomische Macht

Vertrauen bildet die Grundlage für alle Beziehungen und jede Form der Kommunikation, für alle Individuen, Unternehmen, Organisationen und Zivilisationen rund um den Globus. Mangelndes Vertrauen zerstört auch die erfolgreichsten Unternehmen, die mächtigste Regierung und die florierendste Wirtschaft. Trotz der offensichtlich immensen Macht von Vertrauen spielt es im realen Geschehen kaum eine Rolle und gehört wohl zu den am meisten unterschätzten Faktoren unserer Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft. Stephen M. R. Covey zeigt in seinem viel beachteten Buch „Schnelligkeit durch Vertrauen“, dass Vertrauen kein weicher Faktor ist, sondern ein pragmatischer und realer Wert, den man erschaffen und zur Handlungsgrundlage machen kann. Er präsentiert konkrete Vertrauensregeln und Prinzipien und zeigt, wie auf allen Ebenen eines Unternehmens Vertrauen aufgebaut, gelebt und gefördert werden kann. Seine These: Vertrauen ist eine Schlüsselkompetenz und ein Art Teilchenbeschleuniger für die Wirtschaft.
