Are the rich bad for society? The author of this book, a successful Canadian entrepreneur who made his fortune and created 3000 jobs, has written a manifesto celebrating the achievements of people who have earned their wealth. He says that many of the critics are overlooking one crucial thing: we need business people to build companies and generate wealth to keep the economy going. That’s the only way to generate the wealth that pays for government services like health and education.
Derek Bullen is Founder and CEO of S.i. Systems ULC. It is one of the largest professional services companies in Canada, with thousands of Information Technology consultants working on projects across Canada for blue chip corporations and government agencies. He is the author of High Velocity, a book to help new professionals in IT develop their soft business skills.

“An important story about the true wellsprings of growth and innovation in our society. It’s a long-overdue vindication of those who drive our economy.” —Mo Lidsky, Chief Executive Officer, Prime Quadrant

“A new look at the importance of wealth creators to support our standard of living and create opportunities for future generations.” —Nancy MacKay, CEO, MacKay CEO Forums

"Empathetic and concise, never defensive, never exactly the stereotype he aims to bury. As someone who worked his way to the top, who worked for everything he has, Bullen has a refreshingly honest, modest but never self-deprecating take on the responsibilities and necessary albatrosses the rich like him now find themselves culpable for. 'Wealth does not make a person good.' However— and this is more to the point—neither does wealth necessarily make a person bad." —Garth Thomas, Hollywood Digest
