Koch v. Cato

I rather like the Cato Institute. Swap emails with a couple of the guys there. I think they do good work.

However, this.

To be honest, all I can think of is laying in stores of popcorn. It\’s going to be a hell of a show.

  1. This might be incredibly naive but if the Koch’s are providing little to no funding over recent years and they’re pushing out board members that are major donors, why not just resurrect the institute under a new name and banner. It’s not as if the main assets of the institute are locked up in factories, clients, employees, IP etc. It’s value is in it’s reputation and it’s reputation is based upon the people within it. Just move the people. Move and let Koch’s neocons fight over the rotting carcass? No?

  2. Kevin Monk (#1), Cato does have a huge building in the middle of Washington DC, which must be quite valuable.

    But also I suspect they want to keep the brand name (they seem to have put a lot of work into building up a reputation), the back catalogue, the subscriber base and other intangibles.
