Argenti notes that based on research from the Reputation Institute, the U.S. ranks 23rd in the world in terms of reputation. In order to “bring gold back to America’s reputation,” Argenti recommends that Americans:

  • Be optimistic
  • Do something for someone else
  • Volunteer their time in their community
  • Vote
  • Say “thank you” more often
  • Instill a sense of hope in their children
