Trust is an extrinsic variable. A network theory of social capital is the best way to tie economic theory to value based management, social network analysis and the priorities of marketers, IMHO.

Thank you for the link to the presentation, I had missed it! If you're mulling this over and would like a reference with great material, I recommend "The Speed of Trust" by Stephen MR Covey (the son). I started reading it today and am already grateful Andy Sernowitz sent it to me. Check it out.
