Bloomberg: Everything Is Private Equity Now


Bloomberg Businessweek devoted its cover story to the dramatic growth of private equity and its impact on the American economy, which included this pithy summary: Heather Slavkin Corzo, senior fellow at Americans for Financial Reform and director of capital market policies at the AFL-CIO: “The massive growth of private equity over the past decade means that this industry’s influence, economic and political, has mushroomed,” she says. “It’s hardly an exaggeration to say that we are all stakeholders in private equity these days, one way or another.”
