Webinar: Trust in Times of Crisis

Luxembourg School of Business is taking steps to help the community during this lockdown: for the next 2 weeks, our professors will be available every day for a 1-hour webinar at 4 P.M. 


The COVID19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the global economy and all of us as individuals.  We could look at the profound economic impacts experienced as the consequence of a dramatic decline in trust.  While there may be a temptation to focus on the response to the pandemic as a unique experience.  The reality is that this is part of a class of problems that provoke uncertainty and create an increased scarcity of trust.  This session will include a brief introduction to how trust works, why it’s been in decline and how we can potentially use our experiences during this event to prepare for future shocks.  There will be a blend of lectures with opportunities for questions I’ll attempt to answer.
