Is private equity really dead?

Mr. Carter said today that private equity is dead.  The Wall Street Journal’s Andy Kessler has taken the same stance, but the author of this Business Insider believes that this assertion is ludicrous.  He claims private equity has more cash than ever before, with investors continuing to pour money back into PE firms, its top managers appear to have learned from the major issues of the last decade, and Washington has not taken action against private equity.  If private equity investments are stable and for the risk-averse, why is it dying?
