Shawn Teigen spoke with Lara Jones from RadioACTive about The Kindness of Strangers: Social Trust in Utah. This installment in the Social Capital Series presents data and analysis on four hard indicators: convictions for fraud, penalties for breach of trust, public corruption convictions and violent crime rates. It looks at Utah’s performance on these measures over time, comparing the Beehive State both to the seven other Mountain States and to the nation at large.
Following that discussion, RadioACTive played Utah Foundation’s Utah Thrives Podcast: Narcissism and the Unraveling of Society, featuring insights from Shaylyn Romney Garrett, co-author with Robert Putnam of The Upswing: How America Came Together A Century Ago and How We Can Do It Again. The conversation draws from the Utah Foundation’s 2021 Annual Luncheon. The clip includes a Q&A moderated by Utah Foundation President Peter Reichard.View Article
