In the last couple of weeks, a number of legislators, journalists and I have written about what the rapid rise of private equity investments means to Americans. I welcome the introduction of the ‘Stop Wall Street Looting Act of 2019,’ because we need to analyze seriously what the positive and negative effects are of private equity to ordinary Americans. Earlier this week, I highlighted balanced, as well as pro and con points about private equity. Since the Federal Reserve is likely to cut rates this coming week, I believe that the chase for yield will only intensify. Private equity will continue to look for deals, and private equity executives will have an easier time loading up companies with debt from both banks and non-banks.
