Freakonomics interviews Charles Koch

June 21, 2017

Charles Koch, chairman and CEO of Koch Industries, recently sat down with Freakonomics Radio for a series of wide-ranging interviews, covering Mr. Koch’s views on everything from Market-Based Management® and leadership to philosophy and public policy. The two segments seek to untangle rhetoric from reality by exploring some of the more common misconceptions about Mr. Koch and his vision for the company and society as a whole. You may very well be surprised by what you learn. We hope you enjoy it.
