Rubenstein's D.C. in New Economic & Political Environment

Bisnow will host Carlyle Group cofounder David Rubenstein on April 27, 2011.  Their website states:

The incomparable David Rubenstein returns for his third headline appearance with Bisnow, having riveted large audiences on two previous occasions with remarkable analysis and predictions concerning the key economic and political events and trends of our time—and the implications for our region, country, and world.

By some measures the greatest business success in the history of the Washington region, David founded the Carlyle Group in 1987, which has grown into the world’s largest private equity firm.
Barry Glassman will interview Rubenstein, described as having "original insight, disarming candor, and droll humor."  Bisnow calls it the Signal event of the year.  They revealed one new sign in relation to Carlyle.

The Carlyle Group is one of the world's largest private equity firms. David co-founded the firm in 1987 and it now manages $100B from 27 international offices. The company has 76 funds across four investment disciplines (buyouts, credit alternatives, growth capital, and real estate).

Evidence of the greatest business success includes:

Pay attention to this dynamic duo on foreign aid.  Watch how Rubenstein manages his Libyan history, in light of looming economic opportunities.  It's a "new economic and political environment," much like the Guilded Age with its Robber Barons.
