Abstract
Paul Barry’s "Rich Kids" tells the story of both One.Tel, the telecommunications company launched by Jodee Rich and Brad Keeling in 1995, and Imagineering, a software company, which was founded by Rich in 1981 and also collapsed. Despite the widespread heartache, Rich, Keeling and some key executives emerged from One.Tel with millions of dollars from bonuses, royalties and selling shares. "Rich Kids" is a tale of breathtaking greed, self-aggrandisement, mismanagement, ineptitude and duplicity.
