On this week’s bonus episode of Lever Time Premium, exclusively for The Lever’s supporting subscribers: We’re sharing two separate interviews that cover everything you need to know about the evils of the private equity industry.

In the first interview, David interviews federal prosecutor Brendan Ballou about his new book Plunder: Private Equity's Plan to Pillage America. Brendan, who served as special counsel for private equity in the Justice Department's Antitrust Division, explains how the enforcement of private equity works — and how it could be better.

David also speaks with Joshua Rosner, co-author of These Are the Plunderers: How Private Equity Runs — And Wrecks — America, which covers the past 30 years of private equity’s history and how it’s become such a dominant — and destructive — force in the American economy.
