Description
Few people realise that the top private equity firms such as Blackstone Group, Carlyle Group and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts have become America's largest employers through the businesses they own. Journalist Josh Kisman explores private equity's explosive growth and shows how its barons wring profits at the expense of the long-term health of their companies. He argues that excessive debt and mismanagement will likely trigger another economic meltdown within the next five years, wiping out up to two million jobs. The Buyout of America is a timely book with an important warning for all.
