“A thoroughly researched and engaging book, where a strong and innovative quest is made for bridging economics and ethics.” – Dr. Arturo Hermann, Senior Research Fellow at the Italian National Institute of Statistics (Istat), Rome, Italy
“From Schumpeter to Minsky, passing through the Austrian School of Economics, economists have dealt with the influence of financial instruments on the real economy cyclical evolution. A lesson that too many have forgotten. The Global Financial Crisis has forced us to rediscover the links between financial development and business cycles. Professor Madi’s book leads us to a better understanding of such links at the light of those ethical considerations that should never abandon the economic reflection.” – Dr. Carmelo Ferlito, Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs and INTI International College Subang, Malaysia

Private Equity Globalisation: ethical business challenges will provoke the readers to think about the transformations in corporate ownership and the global expansion of the private equity business model. The 2008 global financial crisis made clear there is the need to readdress and redesign business models and re-balance corporate power in order to broaden the dialogue on responsible investment. In short, the book aims to prepare the reader for participating in a fruitful debate. The main target is the transformation of the global economy to a more just and sustainable one.
The book aims to motivate the general public interested in economics and business. In addition, its well fits to a broad interdisciplinary audience that is willing to read about the “new normal” in the private equity industry and the current ethical business challenges.
