Using a country panel based on the Eurobarometer survey, we find that higher inflation rates reduce trust. Thus people appear to evaluate the performance of the ECB on the basis of its success in achieving its primary objective, namely price stability. However, national income also has a strong impact, which poses a dilemma to the ECB, as it cannot increase economic growth in the long run. Unemployment does not have a significant impact on trust in the ECB, while unemployment spending exerts a trust-building impact. Possibly, automatic stabilizers serve as substitutes for ECB interventions, which would lower people s trust. Interestingly, active labor market policies, which can be interpreted as proxies for the public s perception of the urgency of the problem of high unemployment, tend to decrease trust.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2011-03-25T09:43:19Z</dc:date> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Hahn, Volker</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Hahn, Volker</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Fischer, Justina</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
