Zhang Weiying & Ke Rongzhu (Guanghua School of Management,Peking University)  
Trust has been widely recognized as “social capital”, a very important determinant for economic growth and social progress, complementary to physical capital and human capital. It is often argued that Chinese communities are low trust ones and China is now in “trust crisis”. Using a cross regional survey, this paper analyzes how trust affects regional economic performances such as GDP growth rate, size distribution of the firms, FDI inflow in China. The paper also shows that cross regional differences in trust depends on possibilities of repeated transactions, marketization, transportation facilities, education, size of government officials, and so on.
