It seems like that the general public [1,2,3] and some academics [4,5] believe that China is an exemplar society of low-trust. Most of my friends share the same beliefs. However, one data source claims that China has the highest social trust score: https://ourworldindata.org/trust. See also: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/j.1467-9248.2011.00909.x.
From my limited experience, people in China don't trust commercials, agents, or anyone who wants your money; but commoners are often trustable.
I tried to find several academic papers [6,7,8,9] but none of them directly compare the trust level in China and a Western country.
Do you have some reliable reference?
