Trust refers to willing acceptance of one person's power to affect another. It is discussed more formally in the articles on social capital, profession and authority.
There is much dispute on whether degrees of trust can be measured, or whether it simply exists until there is doubt. See ethics and meta-ethics for more on these abstract questions.
There is also much dispute about how lying, blaming and hypocrisy interact with trust. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trust, Feb 2004
