ACS Madison: "Kochland" with Christopher Leonard
Join the ACS Madison Lawyer Chapter and the Wisconsin Book Festival for a discussion with author Christopher Leonard on his book, Kochland: The Secret History of Koch Industries and Corporate Power in America.
If you want to understand how we undermined unions in this country, generated income inequality, stalled progress on climate change, and allowed corporations to buy the influence industry, all you have to do is read this book. Seven years in the making, Kochland reads like a true-life thriller, with larger-than-life characters driving the battles on every page. The book tells the ambitious tale of how one private company consolidated power over the course of a half-century, and how, in doing so, it helped transform capitalism into something that feels deeply alienating to many Americans today.
