ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's comments on how lack of trust in political leaders is responsible for global economic crisis. He says that most of the countries in the world are struggling to pay their debt, however, it is not the real problem. According to him, debt can be paid off easily, once common man's confidence is restored. He says that world leaders like U.S. President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are not able to inspire their people.
