LTV's Toms Pastors spoke with Andreasson while he was in Rīga to talk at the Stockholm School of Economics about a report he wrote on the subject titled “Trust – the Nordic Gold”, published by the Nordic Council of Ministers and concerning, more specifically, social trust.
The Nordic region is regarded as a world leader when it comes to social trust among its population. The research literature in the field suggests that a high level of social trust is perhaps the most important resource for a society in both economic and other terms. Consequently, as the title of the report implies, trust can be regarded as a type of gold for the Nordic countries.
The report is available to read from the Nordic Council of Ministers and the interview can be seen above.
