Among the four billionaire Koch brothers, one of the nation’s most powerful business families, Charles and David tie for 4th on the richest people in America list, and tie for 6th on the world’s billionaires list by Forbes magazine — with a fortune estimated at $41 billion each.

As William Koch sizes up his siblings during an interview with The Associated Press, on family, money, and politics: “David and I like off-color jokes, Freddie likes more sophisticated jokes.” Charles? “Charles likes golf.”

—On his siblings overall William said: “I once used to say that my brother David collected girlfriends till he got married, then my brother Charles collects money and my brother Fred collects houses and then I collect everything I can.”
