The barbarian establishment

There is also a broader political risk, identified in a paper published in January by professors at New York University and the Research Institute of Industrial Economics, a Swedish think-tank, called “Private Equity’s Unintended Dark Side: on the Economic Consequences of Excessive Delistings”.

The public will become disengaged from the capital component of capitalism, and as a consequence will be ever less likely to support business-friendly government policies.
