Sex Scandal Rocks Private Equity

Okay. We just made up that headline. But we got the idea of creating a phony private equity headline from this Fortune article, which has a terrific title: “Private Equity, Private Lives.” If you were hoping for some really good inside dope on the private lives of folks working for private equity firms, and you know you totally were, prepare to be let down. The article is much more sober and responsible than that. It’s not really about “Private Lives” at all. It’s just a good, sensible article about some of the ways private equity shops motivate managers to turn improve their performance.
That said, it’s probably necessary reading if you still don’t understand what was wrong with Mike Kinsley’s or Ben Stein’s clown-suited arguments.
