Mangemilliardæren, der finansierede USA’s højredrejning

David Koch blev aldrig politiker, men brugte sin milliardformue på at blive en af de mest indflydelsesrige og kontroversielle personer i amerikansk politik. Han døde i august.

Den stenrige industrimagnat David Koch gav milliarder til kulturen og til kræftforskning, men har i de seneste tre årtier også brugt enorme summer på at påvirke amerikansk politik, hvilket har givet ham en hovedrolle i USA's højredrejning. Fredag døde han 79 år gammel.
