In this lecture, Dr. Baltimore discuses the central importance of trust, in science, education, commerce and personal life. According to Dr. Baltimore, "trust is a moral stance without which a community cannot exist because, as the Enron debacle shows, no network of safeguards can replace moral behavior."
