Trust, by George Zachar

November 22, 2006 |

Freakonmics author/blogger Steven D. Levitt asked his readers to name the “most trusted” person in America. (He didn’t know that was Walter Cronkite’s nickname.) The results, from among 150 replies:

Warren Buffett 8 Bill Gates 7 Jon Stewart 7 Oprah Winfrey 6 Alan Greenspan 4 Billy Graham 4 Colin Powell 4 Bill Clinton 4 Tom Hanks 3 Dr. Phil 3 Paul Harvey 3 Mister Rogers 3 George Bush 3 Homer Simpson 3

The only positive thing I can say about this list is that it is led by two notional capitalists.
