Max and I discuss his new book, "Complicit," and explore the root causes of complicity, how it's enabled and how to stop it. What We Discuss with Max H. Bazerman While It is easy to blame obvious offenders, we rarely consider the many people supporting their unethical or criminal behaviors. There was a corroborating cast of people who were complicit: business partners, investors, news organizations, employees, and others. And, whether we’re aware of it or not, most of us have been complicit in the unscrupulous behavior of others. We explore complicity through the stories of McKinsey, Arthur Andersen, Theranos, ExxonMobile, and BP and learn valuable lessons on not only what creates complicity but our role in allowing it to happen. --►Purchase Complicit:   (Amazon Link) Full show notes and resources can be found here:   Brought to you by Indeed, Masterclass, and InsideTracker. --► For information about advertisers and promo codes, go to:   --► Prefer to watch this interview:   Like this show?
