University Panel on The Obama Administration and Business at Yale

Description of Yale School of Management Video: Just about anyone following the relationship between the Obama administration and the business community—particularly Wall Street—would agree that things are not going well. On April 27, a panel of four Yale SOM faculty members gathered to address the issue. “Both parties essentially speak different languages and they keep having trouble relating,” said Jeffrey Kindler, distinguished faculty fellow and the former CEO of Pfizer. “Rhetoric does matter. Things get heated, which garners mistrust.” Kindler was joined on the panel, sponsored by the Democrat and Conservative student clubs, by Gary Gorton, the Frederick Frank Class of 1954 Professor of Management and Finance, Andrew Metrick, the Michael H. Jordan Professor of Finance and Management, and Douglas Rae, the Richard S. Ely Professor of Management, with Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, the Lester Crown Professor in the Practice of Management, moderating.
