Despite the possibility of a drastic change in direction on climate change policy after the election of Donald Trump to the presidency in the USA, GlobeScan’s tracking shows that the American public now believes more than ever that climate change is a “very serious” problem (since GlobeScan started tracking concern about climate change in 1998). Findings from our new GlobeScan Radar eBrief show that Americans’ sense that climate change is a serious issue has rebounded after steadily declining in the...

In our new eBrief, we explore the low levels of trust in the finance industry across different regions, the reasoning behind the low scores, and ways the finance industry...

More than seven years on from the financial crisis, concerns about trust and confidence in banks and financial institutions show no sign of diminishing. With the latest series of scandals, allegations and billion-dollar fines, questions are being asked about whether the industry has learnt any lessons. As regulators call on banks to ‘raise their game’ to regain the public’s trust, we ask what can be learnt from our public opinion and stakeholder research about the roots of distrust, the opportunities for...
