Trust in Government at All Time Low

A new survey has found that Australia’s trust in the government is at an all-time historic low. Less than 41% of Australians are satisfied with Australian politics, down from 86% in 2007.  In fact, satisfaction with democracy is tipping around the world — there are now more authoritarian regimes than full democracies. This raises the question: Is democracy really working?
