The private equity-leveraged buyout form of finance capitalism: Ethical and social issues, and potential reforms

Business Ethics Quarterly 18 (3):379-404 (2008)
Abstract
This article explains how the private equity-leveraged buyout type of financial institution (PE-LBO) operates as a form of finance capitalism. PE-LBO capitalism is described and compared with other types of capitalism such as family business capitalism, managerial capitalism, and other forms of finance capitalism such as shareholder value capitalism. Ethical and social issues structurally related to the PE-LBO form are analyzed. Potential reforms and/or solutions are considered
