The Carlyle Group is one of the largest and most successful private equity firms in the world. It was founded nearly 30 years ago by David Rubenstein, then a Washington, D.C. lawyer and former aide to President Jimmy Carter. Now a billionaire, Rubenstein may be better known for giving away money than making it. He, like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, has vowed to donate at least half of his fortune before he dies.
