The article deals with a report from Dow Jones Private Equity Analyst on a 60 percent decline in funding raised by U.S. private equity firms in 2008. The Dow Jones report said that declines could continue in the coming months as some firms consider cutting fund sizes and limited partners, likely lacking good returns, will have little money to boost investments. The economic crisis that began with the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy has left several areas of private equity unscathed, according to the report.
