Buyout activity: the impact of aggregate discount rates
Buyout booms form in response to declines in the aggregate risk premium. We document that the equity risk premium is the primary determinant of buyout activity rather than credit-specific conditions.

Whom Do the Federal Reserve Bank Boards Serve?
