Hosted at The Watergate, the Atlantic Exchange series features one-on-one interviews with the top voices of technology, business, policy and culture. The Atlantic's Steve Clemons sat down with Richard Edelman — President and CEO of his eponymous public relations firm — and discussed the recently released 2015 Edelman Trust Barometer, the firm's 15th annual trust and credibility survey. Clemons and Edelman explored why trust in institutions has dropped to the level of the great recession in 2009 and how higher levels of trust can lead to greater willingness to embrace business innovations.
