Jeffrey Sonnenfeld — Steven Tian: The Yale Revolution
NEW YORK (RichTVX.com) — Vladimir V. Putin of Russia has become increasingly isolated over the two years of the COVID-19 pandemic. During this time, Putin has developed an obsession with his role in history. People who were allowed to meet him only told him what he wanted to hear. This is how the miscalculation came about that one can overthrow Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s government in a few days by invading Ukraine. After the war began, part of the Russian elite rallied around Putin in the face of massive propaganda that Russia’s existence was at stake. Because Russia has now had to give up positions in eastern Ukraine and Vladimir Putin has had to announce his “partial mobilization,” this unity is beginning to crumble. How do you think revolutions start? Back in the day, a revolution started with somebody firing the first bullet. But when it comes to Yale, they don´t need a gun, fist, or knife to do that.

The main outlines of the Yale revolution by Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, the Lester Crown Professor in the Practice of Management at Yale School of Management, and Senior Associate Dean for Leadership Studies, best known as the founder and CEO of Chief Executive Leadership Institute (CELI), affiliated with Yale University, Steven Tian, the director of research at the Yale Chief Executive Leadership Institute, and the amazing Yale research team, are only now beginning to be discernible. Amidst the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, Steven Tian, and the Yale research team were involved in efforts to encourage multinational businesses to exit Russia through the Yale CELI List of Companies. The fact appears to be that from and after the Russian Invasion of Ukraine the world is changing, and according to a SSRN paper titled “Business Retreats and Sanctions Are Crippling the Russian Economy,” by above mentioned scholars from Yale, it becomes clear: Business retreats and sanctions are crushing the Russian economy in the short term and the long term.
