CAMBRIDGE FORUM presents "KOCHLAND" with author, Chris Leonard.
If you want to make sense of how we destroyed our unions, widened the income divide, stalled progress on climate change, and how corporations bought the influence industry, you have to understand the story of Koch Industries. Come and listen.
on WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 9 AT 7 PM at First Parish Church, 1446 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge.
Koch Industries is one of the largest private companies in the world, a sprawling conglomerate whose operations span the entire landscape of the American economy.
The Koch brothers are worth $120 billion and operate one of the largest, most well-funded lobbying operations in the United States—arguably the most powerful and far-reachinginfluence network to ever be run out of an American CEO’s office.
Join us at Cambridge Forum to hear author Christopher Leonard tell the epic tale of how one private company, operating in deepest secrecy, consolidated wealth, power, and influence to transform capitalism into something that has come to feel deeply alienating to many Americans.
Christopher Leonard is a business reporter whose work has appeared in The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Fortune, and Bloomberg Businessweek.
