Australia and Singapore record overall decline in trust in institutions

Every year there is an international survey, called the Edelman “Trust Barometer” carried out in 28 countries to measure the level of trust its citizens hold with institutions such as Governments, media, business, and NGO's.

Across all 28 countries an average of 42% of people thought their government was the most broken institute but in Australia the figure was 56%.
