"They thought they wanted political humor, okay? The show I was doing was Jimmy tingle for president. So I got booked in Florida, Texas, Arizona, Southern California, and in Northern California. This isn't the general public. These are corporations and they're there for their company, picnic or whatever. And you're doing their thing. So they're naturally tense anyway. And inhibited in terms of like you said, the HR department of the CEOs there or their boss, so I'm doing my thing. And this is how I learned about the certain words, how you can just alienate a whole crowd. So I inadvertently was not doing as well on stage as I could do. That's as simple as that. But I could feel a tenseness and the audience recoiling from what I was saying. And every gig I'm saying jeez, what am I doing wrong? And I finally got up to Bakersfield, California. I was actually in Kevin McCarthy's district. And he's a guy from the Republican minority leader of the house right now. Anyway, I'm in his district, and they're all ranches. I said to the woman who picked me up at the station, I said, how is this audience? How are they demographically? I'm thinking it's 50 50. It's California. She goes, oh, well, heavy Trump country. Very strong Trump guy. I said, really, she goes, yeah, I'm paraphrasing, but she said, this is the largest concentration of Christian schools in the country. Wow. I took that in for I had like three hours before I go on. I go, how am I going to deal with three, 400 ranches? Who are heavily Christian? And what I ended up doing is I did all this personal stuff. Growing up Catholic, trying to quit drinking, using the higher power to help me quit drinking. All these things that were personal that had nothing to do with politics so much. A personal connection to them. By the time I got to immigration, which they support immigration reform, they've all ranches. That's who's doing working on all these farms. Yes. By the time I got to those issues, they could hear me. And they can appreciate where I was coming from. And at the end of it, you know, I don't want to leave my first podcast blowing my own horn, call it. But by the end of the show, there was a standing ovation. That's all I'm gonna say. I love it. I love it. Yes. The personal story can go a long way, even though the material on the outside might seem very, very political. And when you're coming from, you won't experience then it can just resonate with people more so than just the punditry. Absolutely. Absolutely. Cool. So Colin, I'm looking forward to seeing your show this Thursday night in Boston, January 13th, folks. If you are in another state and I hope you are listening or another city, the show, the last best hope, starring Colin Quinn as traveling, touring the country, go to Colin Quinn dot

"One of the things calling I'm trying to do with this podcast and this show is, you know, I started a social enterprise a few years ago, humor for humanity, where you can actually use entertainment and comedy and, you know, the one person shows or podcasts for purposes beyond just the entertainment value. So for the people watching or listening wherever you are, we're gonna have a link here in the show notes that you can make a donation to a sober house here in Malden, Massachusetts, a friend of mine started it a few years ago. This is an interesting thing calling. This gentleman for years, he worked for the post office. We call him pat the mailman. He worked for the post office for like 35 years. He retired and he said, I've always wanted to a sober house. For guys, in this case, men come in out of early recovery. You know, you have to pay for these soba houses. Unfortunately, there's different formulas for each one. This one, anything we raise is going to go to scholarships for people who want to get sober, need a place to stay, but don't have the bank accounts because so many people are burnt their bridges just professionally and with their family lives. So that link to the humanity will be in the show notes here. So Colin, I am excited, so thank you again for that. And thanks for your support of this show and humor for humanity. Would love to come back. I would love to come back. Yeah, next time you come into a Boston, would love to have you. Talk about some other subjects. Anything else you want to let us know Colin about either your process or the new show, what do you hope for people to take away from your shows? I mean, honestly, I'm hoping that if I could get to a point to really have solutions because you know, comedy's fun because so many committees, they do their act, and there's a solution sometimes in their joke. And I'm like, that would actually work. And that's the fun part too, as you know, of comedy, you will famous for always saying, how about do this, take this group and put them there. And you have all those, that's the kind of stuff that I love in comedy personally. You always had those great ones. By the way, one of the best jokes was it wasn't the solution one, but it was in that same set, where you go, folks. Nobody wants to register for a gun. It takes two weeks to get a phone. Right. But that's what I love about you. Instead of somebody scolding people, you're going, here's how I feel, but here's why you're listening to me. Because anybody can say, I disagree with this. You're making people laugh and going, oh yeah, it does take a long time to get a phone.

"Hey everybody, this is Jimmy tingle. Welcome to the Jimmy tingle show appropriately named, I think. This is our first episode of our video show in podcast and I couldn't be happy today to introduce my first guest. My friend Colin Quinn and I go way back. We go back to the 1980s in the comedy clubs in Boston and in New York. I got to meet him way back in the day. He was a big influence to me. A good friend and we've been friends ever since going back, whatever that is. 35 years, 40 years, whatever it is. But he's done a lot of great things you may know him from weekend update on Saturday Night Live. He's been in a ton of movies and he's been pursuing the one person show format for the last, I don't know, 20, 25 years or so, and he's done a ton of them, and they're all great. And I want to talk to him about that because he's in Boston. This Thursday night, doing his show at the Wilbur theater. So please welcome to the show ladies and gentlemen, the one the only from New York City, mister Colin Quinn. Yes. Hi, Jimmy. We first met, I saw Jimmy tingle. They go, you gotta watch this guy, Jimmy tingle. And I was up here at Boston in one of these clubs. And he goes on stage and he goes, folks. I'm the pink wonder. One minute later, he goes, the czar of one of town. Look at him, he has like ten nicknames that he gave himself. He kept his head, and he goes, folks. Spike tingle. It was a hilarious act, but it was she was very unique. I knew from the beginning I said, this guy's really great. He's really great. A man of many nicknames. Yes, he gave himself like 8 big names during that. Well, Colin, you know, when I was trying to get booked at the ding Ho. Barry Clemens. I was about daytime bartender and open mic perform. I said, Barry, why don't you book me? He goes, Jimmy. I can't tell Steven Wright and Lenny Clark and Paula pound so not to come in on Saturday night because we're going to book tingle. He goes, you got to start your own room, start your own room, you can book it, you can host it, you'll get all sorts of practice. So I found that room in Watertown mocks pub and Watertown. I think it was Barry nicknamed me the czar of Watertown because you didn't get into Watertown Massachusetts unless you went through me.

"Yeah, so that's the original, the people I was talking about till 1965. Black Puerto Rican Italian Jewish. That's the original New York personality till 1965, whatever. And it's opinionated, loud, pushy, cynical, fast, and of course, politically incorrect. In those days, people spoke ethnically, obviously it's better today. There's a lot less racial tension now, but I'm saying, but what I'm saying. In those days, the first thing people said was racial. The first question they'd ask you, what are you? And you'd have to answer, you know? They'd ask your ethnicity first. Forget about avoiding. Now, try to get a white person to say black. You're like, what race was he? They're like, oh, God. Oh, shit. This is bad. This is bad. This is bad. Nose is people go, what are you? And you can only be four things back. This is at that time. Black white Puerto Rican Chinese. That was it. If you try to be something else, people dismiss it. You're like, well, I'm half Honduran and have Filipino. You'd be putting in a Chinese. So make a decision. And those days, first of all, prejudice and racist two different things. Racist systemic prejudice individual. So some people would be prejudice, but systemically they were fair. The store owner would be like, hey, wait your turn. You're not next. Get in the back of the line. The Cullen lady was next. So individually, he would prejudice systemically, he was there. We had the black bus driver hated white people. And like I said, New York characters, the point of New York, those New York characters is that most of the prejudice. That's part of the chart. Nice people are very nice people. Sincere, like I said, they're supposed to be sincere, boring. Not the most exciting people you ever going to be. You got to have a little bit of a crummy. We have a blockbuster, I hated white kids, so we brought public buses to school. So sometimes you get him, you were excited. Everybody on the bus liked it, because it was a little bit of a story instead of the usual nice bus driver. Hi, come on on. This guy, I'd get on and try to make my Friends lay up pretend I couldn't find my bus pass. I'm like, sorry, I have it here somewhere. I know I have it. He's like, yeah, I know you have it too. You better, because you ain't always goddamn busted out. I'll be honest with you. You white people run this country. You don't run this bus, unfortunately for you. I know you think you do, but you don't. Well, I saw right here. You better, you little cracker. I know what you're doing. I recognize your father. I'm like, sorry, it's here. You goddamn devil, get in the back of the bus, you wiped out. It'd be yelling. Why Devils? I know what you do. You never was like, wow. It wasn't a commission forming moment back then. But now, even non ethnic people are very touchy. The New York characters, the obnoxious fan at the game. Now you see them. You can tell the influence by society. Now they're like, hey, you're crazy. No offense, anyone with mental illness in their family, obviously. Obviously, it's a serious issue. We need more funny for research. Why isn't it more funny for research? For mental illness, you know? The cranky old ladies now they're like, turn at me, I was like, Dan, you're a little basset. Unless it's a legitimate form of social protest, in which case I understand. The construction workers, girls who are buying out, they're like, wow, look at that strong independent woman coming back. I know girls are like bullshit. They still hear us. So it's okay, finally. Yeah, because all those people. And it's also the Internet, obviously, took away a lot of New York characters, because Yelp, perfect example, Yelp was a person. Now you read Yelp, I didn't like this play. In those days, you wanted to find out if the deli was good, some guy was like you and Yelp. He'd come in. He's like, yeah, give me a sandwich. He's not making my sandwich anymore. His kidney stingy with the relish this little. You'll make it. Like he was giving the guy a tree. You make it from now on. Directions, you know, now you've got Google Maps, ways, and it's dispassionate. Make a left. Go 500 feet. Stop making U turn. Congratulations. You've reached your destination. In the old days, you had to find directions guy. Every couple of blocks it was a guy. Put in fact to be out there, miserable didn't get along with his wife. There's always standing outside waiting for somebody. You pull obey. This guy looks like he knows his way around. You know what I mean? What are you trying to get to? You know, he had to shame you. That was part of the ritual. You're like, the van wick, the van wick. How'd you get here if you're trying to get to the van with? You can't even answer that question. He starts telling other people this guy's trying to get to the van wicker. This guy's not helpful. He's like, where's he coming from? What does that have to do? But man, wick, old blocks looking at you. Then he says, grandstanding, because he's got you now. The kids are in the back. He's like, your kid's okay with this guy driving. You know, shout out. And yeah, but the difference was, like I said, negativity. That's what makes humorous characters in New York. It was supposed to be a negative test. A city of misery and complaint. That's the whole point. And posit the positive people with a psychopath back then, because they just came out of some program and you see them on the street. How are you doing? I'm doing great. How are you? I should have crossed the street. I forgot this stuff. How was your girlfriend left you? Blessing in disguise. Well, heard you lost your job, but best thing that ever happened to me, allergies. Now people try to be positive. I see them all the time. They come movie my building. Guys get in the elevator. If I go across equipment, what's up, man? Nothing. So what's going on? Same thing that's up, coincidentally. Nothing. This guy goes to me the other day. I swear to God, in New York City, it was sunny, and he goes, how much do you love in this sun? Not as much as you are, apparently, because you seem to be loving it like an Aztec priest after an eclipse. So why don't you calm down? I've seen the sun like 2000 times. I'm older and I'll be honest with you. I got it when I was young. You saw him, and nobody stream Colin Quinn, the New York story only on Netflix..

That's rude. You know what I'm saying? There's no stools. They want you to walk and eat your food. You have to fold your food and what?

They walk on the street that cause you to stop and they drive us like, oh, I almost got hit by that person. That was close. It's just a rush and hurry think. I mean, you know, he was a little kid.

We write jokes the night before. The interesting thing i've found is talking to comedians. When ever anyone says something funny never laugh you go. That's a good. Yeah or you go. That's a good one You know that's funny. It never seems like comedians laugh. And i guess that makes sense because it's your job right. I don't laugh. When i write memos about oil and gas investments I've heard if comedian laughs. Because they in their head wrote it better. Maybe i never laughed so harvey so for me. One of the we've interviewed a lot of people in our podcast and one of my favorite talk kestrel. It's called breaking down.

Another rice graduate He's he's way more handsome and way more successful than me. But but certainly. When when i show up on stage they don't want me to win and so he had some advice that it's like look at my bits.

Need both have you absolutely otherwise you are. That's exactly rather was just replaying. Yeah you're gonna crush the you know the seller store but all right not iran respect from everybody.

"It isn't open mic after all but also maybe there's something to be said for what's the implement that's in place at that point to make you feel like you shouldn't just walk out of this room because you're on the other of some line at this point that's the issue right it. It violates that code that should make you feel like you have space there. I don't know who cares at the end of the comedy now. I think that's i think that's good. I like i like that thinking i. I never got to a point where there are such large audiences. The most i've ever had was like a fifty person room so is always very small and it was always like all scenes. Which maybe that's why i felt comfortable. They're all of my male male comedy friends. Where like more sensitive than. I am like bigger feminists than i am so i was always lucky enough to be around people who are very protective of me and my like one gender obstacle insist. That would be the case. I've never done stand up lake in a place that i didn't feel safe and certainly know that there are more spots like that. I love that and and it's a reminder. I think a lot of all scenes actually. Just read this amazing article about how one of the first rooms was. When janine gafa started in a bookstore in l. a. and the list of names of people participating in some of them you wouldn't expect like colin. Quinn was a huge part of it and it makes you. I've gotten to know colin i. I love colin quinn. But it makes you realize all scenes. It's not always necessarily about a shared artistic mentality so much as a space of. Hey maybe the ten of us should break off and just create a rumor we can feel relaxed and then you do that and then of course that grows to become clicky in its own right and there's people in that room who feel like they're not being included and then she'll ray grab their ten friends and do that but right. That's why odd space is very often start is like it's not about a you and i share this creative vision. It's like you and i seem to be uncomfortable. We're going to get onstage. We seem to be the ones that are both consistently uncomfortable at these open. Mics we go to. Should we start our own open mic. And that's how it begins right and that's the beautiful thing who knows who knows we got to anyway. Iron man..

"Something that pretty universal. Yeah yeah yeah i always. I introduced friend to mitch hedberg the other day. Never you know. He's he's he's a guy. Machine also has not messing unique delivery. So it's like an extra bonus on top just being a gag merchant. And it's like this. This is comedy from you. Know at this point. What at least two three decades. So here's the thing self contained whereas like if you're watching an actress same time. Do bits about reagan yet. It's not gonna have the same. I think i think you're right about the desire to have this like cova. Jason reality 'cause like a friend assumed friend the other day about like tv shows. They like to their life. I can't even remember. This is how much. I wasn't interested in whether say i can't remember the name of the tv show but this because they went. This season is all about People mosques as as like yes sir. I just shot off. The palm of my brain was actively remembering. Just wait. wait for them to finish. So i could say i don't want to watch knots. Yeah pretty much. I think that the yeah when you have that kind of everything is based on the context of our particular time you give yourself a an indict you give yourself in expiring For when that material is gonna be just people over. People don't understand the context of it to get what is being said. Yeah go sensibilities change in a black joke known obliquely about tracer neil. His his standup probably wouldn't get same. Reception will probably would have had to evolve if it exists in the modern twenty. Twenty one here But if you if you can take yourself out of the euro coach for context and a and watch his material in the context in which it was written and delivered you can say genius. Brilliant as as like just from a purely comedic perspective it's boring as doug shit to intellectualize company but happy covid. He's as gags on. His jokes are on another level. Hey teases out. I hesitate site truths but he takes his out things which are true from his perspective. Well and i think he loved what he minds is the interpersonal relationships. Yes especially romantic and true for that perspective at that time. Not objectively true especially from Twenty twenty one goal so like the the goalposts that kind of move but like the underlying truth of romantic entanglements aloft. Way he says is really just dead on. Yeah and then you know they'll be alliance like oh yards the nine east of the nineties the still that kind of on confronted element of of misogyny that is necessarily in him but his indy coca. He's talking about In some of the same his standup special in him on colin quinn. Oh tough crowd tougher of so. I only really know him from his standup in his appearances on that thing But yeah from the alone. You know the guys company was another level to the papal hate Quote unquote competing against in terms of being the golden child of that age have been recently rewatching. Some classic comedy is not where this is come constantly cycling. Yeah i find. I find i. I quite like to go back in time and watch comedians from a bygone era and Just you know just kind of milk some for the inspiration that they are not really in terms of material but just in sound people forgotten these parallel thinking of you. If you've been watching recently. I think loans purse. I ray watched a bunch of dylan moran stuff until nov my my favorite comic ever I just just ray watched and announcing their appreciating more and move all the way in which he speaks and the poetry of his speaking voice. And just the way he can en- trump's an audience with the rhythm and the lyricism of just the way he saw even that he's jokes on necessarily they're not to everyone's taste but he's delivery of his junk's is done in such a Almost like a sunburn. Or i think the irish The irish would shown akitas like the The storyteller round the round the campfire. Something you get a new one for me like hey you know. He has this kind of puff poet health storyteller old comic on. It's just now that. I've been doing comedy for wall and that's kind of like. That was the reason. I wanted to accommodate as hell if i can do that. That's the best thing ever and nothing like that. Oh so what. I watch him still in or you know whereas if i watch people who run gags the saint in a similar vein to i do watch mitch hedberg and just think the mindset that he was in when he thought that is enviable Even his run of the mill gags just like he's in. He's in a different world when he writes those. He's not looking at reality from the same way that the rest of us To see those connections and make that link and create that that little kind of a bit. But yeah when i watched omar load. What can i can. I speak sunburn.

And they would have known that if they had done any investigative digging. What so ever And again. I don't want to downplay the threat anybody face and I don't doubt they were all scared. Nancy Mays told her. She was scared, She said she barricaded herself inside her office. So she wasn't saying, Hey, AOC has no right to be scared of. How dare you be scared? She wasn't downplaying the claims of sexual assault survivors because she herself is a sexual assault survivor. As she said on her show, she has told that story. On the House Foreign South Carolina What she was saying is I'm tired of these sideshow distractions where five people die. And somehow this becomes about AOC to Colin Quinn used to do a great joke about back in the day of the days of September 11th. He would say, It's the worst thing that's ever happened to any of us in our lives yet you've got those annoying people who have to tell you how you know they could have died of things have been done differently. There's old Conklin, but he used to be like, Yeah, you know, I take the two train every day. But if I had taken the a train that day, have you ever taken a train in your life? No, no, never once in my life, So shut the hell up, you know, And that's basically what Nancy Mace was saying. There were no insurrectionists in their complex.

What Businesses Can Learn From the Collapse of Civilizations
"Tracy. do you remember the episode that we did was not long. After after the two thousand sixteen election at the time and maybe still is one of our biggest most popular lots ever. Oh It's definitely one of my personal favorites and it was one of the earliest odd lots episodes as well right. I guess maybe at the time being the biggest at the time is not saying as much but nonetheless it was very popular we talked to an archaeologist about civilizational collapse right not just any archaeologists though one who has been called at various times the Real Life Indiana Jones right so I was like right after the election and of course like half the country was really freak out you know have the contrary probably thrilled. They have the country that was really freaking out was very interested in this idea like what is the end of civilization looks like look like because because maybe that's what we're seeing now right and so we brought on an expert a literal expert in the end or collapses of civilizations right and so very all the ominous signs. We walked through it. He's an expert on the collaborative the Mayans and you know what parallels if any there are between then and what we're seeing in modern society in the US that's right well. We haven't back that. It's very exciting exactly so we are once again talking about collapse ups and ancient civilizations but our guest this time he's been doing more work lately specifically on like parallels to kind of the business world and sort of taking theories from management and economics and applying them to see what parallels between that and again the what causes an organization to collapse so I find this really interesting because at the moment in particular you have a lot of hand wringing over what's going on with the big tech firms and of course for technology culture is such an embedded aspect of a tech firm and so people are talking about whether or not those tech firms arms are maybe not going to collapse. Although I guess you know there's a question mark over things like we work but whether or not they're heading for hard times and how that culture her is feeding into that in even if you don't get outright collapse like this idea of sort of endemic cultural problems that lead to rot I think is a really important phenomenon across all kinds of businesses beyond tech like just think about banks and or think about a bank like wells fargo that has headed numerous fines and scandals handles over the years despite the best ever to management to root out all that stuff it should extraordinarily difficult it seems to undo the rot that can form inside a complex organization right so how does that culture how does that organizational structure within a company actually impacted business and how does it change over time and what can we learn from the Mayans to preserve the robustness of companies all right so without further ado we wanNA bring back for a repeat performance on odd lots of Arthur demerist. He's the Ingraham professor of anthropology director at Vanderbilt Institute of Mesoamerican Archaeology Arthur. Thank you very much for joining us. Hi Oh yeah I'm. I'm happy to be on here. You know this is an audience that I think matters so. It's it's good to be on here. I have one quick correction though the collapse stuff it's got little with trump. I've been doing this since eighty nine and it's it's been building lowly and then in the last ten years all of a sudden. I'm in great demand everywhere to give talks so right I didn't that you just started jumping on the collapsed bandwagon. I do think that helped explain the interest at least that there I think it's the stuff that I worry worry about is more serious as the information technology people and business people and of course the global warming issue issue and but there's really I was surprised that's one reason why I'm doing this that the interest was was coming from beyond academics and from people who can actually make a difference and so I sort of shifted over to communicating on in these kind of venues and then I learned that business the strategic management theory partnership theory these things work really well on looking at ancient civilizations ends and so you know me and my collaborators who one of them is an expert in strategic management. I became a feedback cycle. You know where we're a providing information. We're trying to we have articles submitted to business journals and on the other hand we're using that for my archaeology journals right who try to explain collapse although I'm getting some flack on that so great businesses bad. It's evil capitalists like you guys so thanks so Arthur maybe just to begin with. Can you walk us through the parallels between a society like the Mayan civilization and what we see in business today a while well I will. That's my that's a book but AH civilizations people don't think they sorta like a bunch of people who kind of do the same things civilizations at their core networks. They're primarily political and economic omic networks because the ideas and the region the idiot that's tradition that continues even after collapsed so on but their networks and the political and economic mkx networks or you know as today are always almost inseparable so you start to look at why whole networks can collapsed and then how responses are because most collapses don't happen the governments corporations whatever their problem problem solving institution so there are responses and you can see which ones succeed or fail and of course that leads right into the kind of theory that everyone is doing in management strategic management investment. I mean you guys are in the channel in the prediction business business which is what I'm kind of into so a lot of that applies a lot of the same thing partnership network where using it to explain the relationships between cities economically and trade and politics and then ways in which those go bad and you have basically Lebed the equivalent of bankruptcies before we get into like I want to like really sort of a pull on some of these read sier and the similarities and how you can use management theory theory to understand archaeology and vice versa but before we dive down into that Tracy mentioned in the intro that people call you the real life Indiana Jones and so just to set the scene a little bit more like you're a real archaeologist in terms of what people have in their heads or you go to some remote location and you squat down down a lot and you dig up dirt and you look at stuff probably mostly pottery and things like that. I'm guessing just talked to us about what you've been up to a little bit in terms of your day to day life since the last time you appeared on the show. Well you know what I the Indiana Jones thing. I don't mind it. I used to not like it. I was told that once by Harrison Ford and that I discovered that it's good for business you guys know about that. It'd be so flattered if Harrison Ford Comey Indiana John's yeah. I'm sorry it helps to get the port but I do exploratory archaeology. I accidentally started working during the civil war in El Salvador as a graduate student and because very few people crazy I ended up being one of two archaeologists and then finally just one one and I had a whole kind of country to myself that was not much explored and I discovered it led to a very accelerated career and so ever since then I actually go to those areas where nothing's been done before or very little and I do explor- exploration ration- and then we do large scale multidisciplinary projects and that's the part. That's not like the Indiana Jones thing I mean you don't like you know read the gifts and kiss the girl grown shooting guns and all that I mean it's always and ninety percent of ninety but I'd say sixty percent of his lab work but we study ancient cities and right now so my entire project for the last twenty years is studying an ancient economic network that holds together and we're following. I mean we're literally. The research design is we do neutron activation other analyses. We discover that pottery jade or obsidian volcanic glass is coming coming from another place so we go and dig that place and then we dig we see about that. We saw we've we've actually covered thousand square kilometers but it isn't just the usual region or we are following an economic an economic network so there's I mean we do have we do dig lost cities in the jungle and we do have shoot outs with the bad guys and open terms and all that but that's just you know that's just what you have to do to get started then it becomes essentially the study of economy politics and sociology. IOS y'all of of cities and regions and networks as that works gotten bigger. It's gotten more and more parallel to contemporary the economic networks and multinational corporations so talk to us about what you've discovered because you know I remember a little bit from the previous previous episode but the Mayan Civilization was quite unique in in many ways and I remember you were talking about how they developed. A big trade network where goods were distributed attributed all over the jungle. What does that have to do with modern corporations or the modern economy well in again academic damage there. There's an I've learned that there's a great range of business theory and academic strategic management theory and so on is is probably a a little different but they're break their studies then lead to you know. CFO's reading about it and lead to something else but one of the things that they've been talking about for a long time it's just an example community networks which would be like the EU or even the Western economy where you have partnerships ships that are based on multiple partners. They have an ideology that they develop and business practices have to be within a range of legitimation. Shen and all of that and those kinds of community networks are very tight. One is what was developing in the jungle between all these different cities and then it stabilized and there was great wealth but just as today when when you read the journals about innovation network those are very profitable affordable but that kind of slows and they have a tendency to fall behind so then you have some firms or in this case city eighty states that make breakaway networks which are very high risk It's very much like the initial trading with with China. You know which is a very high risk but very profitable it. There's high high games but there's a high risk for seeing right now. In dealing with cultures societies economic systems that have a different ethic they'd have a different economic culture and reading about that that is exactly exactly what happened with this great city state conquest they were they were the big center for trade up city and all sorts of things coming from the highlands the Maya Economic Network that was so successful this community network all interacting with each other very stable started order to have a lot of problems and the rulers and the nobles of the city farther south made a decision to kind of turn away and it was very surprising I mean in terms of today it would be like China and given transport more and they started trading with long distance partners in other areas forming warming. You know initially. It's like die attic relationships that they say that it's just you know one city with another city. It doesn't have the stability of a multi partner network doc they were they in forty years they just boomed into this incredibly wealthy center and there was this giant like Venice this giant got purely commercial non non territorial kingdom and it then crashed and the whole story is just just just just like stuff out of you you journal so Arthur. How did how did Konkan managed to sort of differentiate itself from the rest of the mind civilization because often when when people think about big companies big multinationals. There's a lot of conformity there and there's a sort of Oregon organizational structure that encourages I guess cohesiveness piece of Ness. You're not necessarily rewarded for taking a risk and going off and doing something completely different. Conformity tends to be rewarded. So how did this particular city city managed to break away well again. This is where this is where the theories coming from a management schools really help you know there's institutional entrepreneurship where Oh you have entrepreneurship but it changes it changes the game playing a different game and that's one thing people don't realize it is very high risk and these these rulers were not stupid. You know they would make these innovations and scary part about responding to collapse is that they would do the right thing but but it would usually fail because of this legitimacy because both the consumers and the other firms. Let's say would would not buy into it. Give me what's an example okay so when you say they did the right thing when confronted with the risk of collapse but it but it didn't work it failed what specifically given given example of okay. Here's give an example of what you're talking about. Well I again. You know there's I'm just written something on four gift front. Using strategic man with my colleague I collaborate with a an endowed chair in Strategic Management Management and and conquest in for example. I can tell you about four four other states we just wrote on this but in Quinn but decision was to first shift away in terms of their trading partners and what happens when you have throughout history when you have new trading partners there's these risks and stuff but new ideas come in not just products but new ideas about structuring your own economic economic system and when my of conquest started trading with Mexican states that were far away and had a more market oriented economy every time they added a new trading partner the structure and Economic System at Colin Quinn changed and one of the things is this vertical integration. They were shipping stuff out you know in and out they were import export then they started instead processing it for stage processing which of course increases the value and then there was shipping it out semi-processed and then later later they started whole new industries in the production of jade and again preliminary stage not the final product talked about sort of free forms and and they did it. They started doing mass production. I mean just you the largest jade workshop ever found in the Americas and so you see these business ideas coming in and again this study's business architecture you see it in everything you see the palace changing from a great royal residence over forty years as eight reconstructions to a giant almost.
