    Private Equity and Human Capital Risk

    The social costs associated with private equity restructuring have been the subject of emotional debates. The head of the German Social Democratic Party, Franz M√ľntefering, once compared buyout firms to “swarms of locusts” who “descend on companies, graze, and then move on,” suggesting that private equity firms make short-term profits by imposing large costs on employees. Public discussions in other European countries and the US reflect similar concerns.
