Abstract

Although trustworthiness has been described as a source of competitive advantage, its value extends to organizational governance and wealth creation.

That lens and each person's interpretation of the social contract impact one's commitment to cooperate. We suggest five propositions that integrate trustworthiness, governance, and wealth creation
