David Rubenstein, co-chairman and co-founder of Carlyle, has given an optimistic outlook on the state of the economy and stated that “It’s actually a good time to invest”

Regarding M&A, Rubenstein explains that there is currently a gap between buyers and sellers in terms of expectations, with buyers expecting a lower price due to the current economic climate.

Rubenstein believes that the US policy to get inflation down is likely to be successful, and that the Federal Reserve will increase interest rates again in February and March, although not so much as to cause a recession.
