Christopher Leonards Kochland



"This corporation its not publicly traded , there is no stock so CNBC doesn't talk about it, CNN doesn't talk about it. It evades a lot of attention but it is enormous. Its annual sales are bigger than Facebook, Goldman Sachs and US Steel combined."


The first 30 minutes are a real eyeopener!

1. One of the best bookstores in the US. Great topic - can't wait to read.

When I lived in DC-land I loved going there.

Poor Koch's - privacy invaded?

2. Having watched this video - the book is on my incoming list.

Great exposition by the author.

Left open where Koch Industries is going into the future.

5. I never realized how big they are or how much they are into big data.

I hate to say it but they sound like a modern tech company.

7. Big tech and big data and screw the people

Seems to be a common thread here.

facebuck, apple, google, microsoft. Gather the personal info and monetize it.

Koch, Unilever, every big/small corp is into this model.

And the consumer is where?

"Their most important product."

3. Thanks for this! I watched the whole thing! I NEVER watch the whole thing :)

It was just that interesting. And scarey.

6. Your welcome, i share your exact same sentiments.

I knew of the kochs before this, but i never realized their size and the reach of their influence was so vast.
