“Unstoppable is a pioneering look into a vital sector of Canada’s economy. It tells of entrepreneurs: their visions, setbacks and successes. It documents booms and busts, risks and rewards, as leasing expanded with many of Canada’s most dynamic businesses. And it reveals asset-based finance’s importance to the investments that drive growth and support Canadians’ quality of life.”William B.P. Robson, President and CEO, C.D. Howe Institute “Despite the rocky 2008-9 period that witnessed a major reduction in asset-backed financing and leasing in Canada, the industry has thundered ahead with over $300 billion in transactions today. It is for good reason why this industry is “unstoppable” but to find out, read this well put-together history. It is a very enjoyable review of an industry that is should be understood by any one working in finance.” Dr. Jack M. Mintz, Palmer Chair of Public Policy, and Director of the School of Public Policy, University of Calgary “Unstoppable tells the story of asset-based finance and leasing in Canada, an often ignored but important part of the Canadian financial system. From the earliest beginnings the subsector has made the financing of vehicles, office equipment, as well as specialized equipment more efficient. This is a notable contribution to our understanding not only of asset based financing but of the whole financial system.” Joe Martin, Director of Canadian Business and Financial History, Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto
