In Defence of Wealth
A Modest Rebuttal to the Charge the Rich Are Bad for Society
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.
