Corporate Mismanagement: Bad Apples, Barrels, and Orchards
In this episode, we talk with business ethicist Kirk O. Hanson about corporate misbehavior. He and co-author Marc Epstein posit a theory that not only are there bad apples, but there are also bad barrels-- and some industries are just ripe with bad orchards. In their book, Rotten: Why Corporate Misconduct Continues and What to Do about It, they tell the tales that end up inspiring corporate scandal documentaries on Netflix. But what they do that the documentaries don't is give a prescription for how to clean it all up.
