Plunder: Private Equity’s Plan to Pillage America
Private equity surrounds us. Firms like Blackstone, Carlyle, and KKR are among the largest employers in America and hold assets that rival those of small countries. Yet few understand what these firms are or how they work. Brendan Ballou will explain how private equity has reshaped American business by raising prices, reducing quality, and cutting jobs. Perhaps most startling is Ballou’s insight into how this is happening with the active support of various arms of the government. Ballou will reveal how private equity can be stopped from wreaking further havoc.
Brendan Ballou is a federal prosecutor and served as Special Counsel for Private Equity in the Justice Department’s Antitrust Division. Previously, he worked in private practice, and before that, in the National Security Division of the Justice Department, where he advised the White House on counterterrorism and other policies. He graduated from Columbia University and Stanford Law School.
The views expressed in his recent book do not necessarily represent those of the U.S. Department of Justice.
