  • Quotes from Richard Fink

    On prosperity: So what we are trying to focus on is: how do you increase prosperity? And that is not just because of a couple of billionaires who want to put more money in their pocket. I mean they have more money than they know what to do with. OK, it’s the fact that every aspect that we can measure, the world is better off in economically free societies.

  • Quotes from David Koch

    On the national debt: A possible forecast of what might happen if these policies continue is the nation of Greece. My god, their debt is gigantically high, unemployment is well over 20 percent in Greece, and they have rioting in the streets, God forbid that should happen to us.

  • Quotes from Charles Koch

    On Washington, D.C.: It’s a very corrosive atmosphere. As (economist Friedrich) Hayek said, you get there, and you get what he called the Fatal Conceit. You start to believe that a few wise people back there know how people should live their lives better than the people themselves did. So we need to tell them more and more how to live their lives, what kind of toilet they can have, what kind of food they can have. You don’t want to eat fat anymore. You shouldn’t have coffee.

  • Revenue, employment continue to grow at Koch Industries

    In a little more than a decade, while a lot of companies were contracting, Koch Industries has doubled its revenue and increased employment fivefold.
