Bain Capital, a private equity firm co-founded by Mitt Romney, has become a major theme of the 2012 presidential campaign. What is a private equity firm? How does it make money for investors? What impact do such firms have on business? Who gains? Who loses? This distinguished panel will address these topics and how they relate to current events.
