The basic reason could be that people believe on equity investment. They just use to float stocks in the market to get some funds. http;//investmentfinancialmanagement.blo gspot.com

When I was in an employee of Investment bank of JP Morgan, they were doing midnight changes of numbers during the crisis years of 2007-2009. JP Morgan got a $35 billion check from federal government to play their books. They call in the middle of the night when I was told to change the numbers in the trading database directly to cook the books. Since then I am sure they are continuing to cheat the financial world as usual on a daily basis. Finally a day dawned on them to eat their own medicine.

The reason for the n curve is because most of the funds were 1999-2000 vintage funds …. go look at what the NASDAQ did after 2000.

the one quibble i have with Kauffman’s suggestions is the focus on terms. while they are a problem, they aren’t the core problem. good managers earn their fees. the problem is that there aren’t many good managers in the VC business.
