Koch Foundation Proposal to College: Teach Our Curriculum, Get Millions http://truth-out.org/news/item/26225-koch-foundation-proposal-to-college-teach-our-curriculum-get-millions http://truth-out.org/news/item/26225-koch-foundation-proposal-to-college-teach-our-curriculum-get-millions

In 2007, when the Charles Koch Foundation considered giving millions of dollars to Florida State University’s economics department, the offer came with strings attached. First, the curriculum it funded must align with the libertarian, deregulatory economic philosophy of billionaire industrialist Charles Koch. Second, the Charles Koch Foundation would at least partially control which faculty members Florida State University hired.
