Chapter 5 shows that central bank reputation is ‘bestowed’ by financial actors whereas formerly central banks controlled the process. If confidence in money is inspired by impression management, when do central bank confidence games appear to be con games? Chapter 6 asks the experts which organisations are the most trustworthy, from central banks to the private sector. Evidence shows anxiety about central bank weaknesses and fairly encompassing distrust towards the private sector – accountancy firms, investment banks, financial press, mutual funds – among informed sceptics.

Trust is itself asymmetric as it takes time and strict rules to build a trustworthy reputation but an instant to shatter one, and it is nearly impossible to rebuild. Where debates on trust see interestbased trust as one of ascribing trustworthiness or its lack to other organisations, it is also a functional strategy aiming to ensure that promises are kept (Hardin 2001: 7). At heart, the function of trust is to control the future. But it is a vain hope, because the future is uncontrollable and the distrust, institutionalised in organisations so long ago, and revived in impersonal forms in recent times remains just as counter-productive as before.

Many were most concerned about credit. THE ARGUMENT Chapter 2 explains why future-oriented emotions are inescapably and historically entrenched in finance. The counter-intuitive idea of emotions being fostered between corporations, even though only individuals are capable of feeling emotions, is examined. If impersonal trust and distrust drive these organisations (banks must trust to lend; credit raters must distrust the creditworthiness of the entities they assess), then these emotions are standard operating procedures.
