For Koch, the philosophy works very well, Koch Industries is the nation’s second-largest private company, responsible for well-known brands like Northern bathroom tissue and Dixie cups.

Charles Koch is a man of contradictions; he is very wealthy, nevertheless, he’s concerned that America is headed toward a two-tiered society consisting of the very rich and the permanently disadvantaged. Koch Industries benefits from government subsidies, yet Koch is against corporate welfare. Koch runs a flourishing business, however, he supports programs that help low-income people start their own company. While he has dealt with the courts over lawsuits against Koch Industries, Charles Koch had the best legal representation money could buy, yet he truly understands the problems poor people face with the criminal justice system.
