Michael Pascoe is one of Australia's most respected and experienced finance and economics commentators with 36 years in newspaper, broadcast and on-line journalism covering the full gamut of economic, business and finance issues.
Michael is seen on Channel 7's Sunrise and news programs, is Contributing Editor for the Sydney Morning Herald and Age BusinessDay sites, is a weekly finance columnist for Yahoo7 and a busy conference speaker, MC and facilitator, bringing rare humour and plain language to the dismal science.
Michael was born and educated in Queensland, starting his career with The Courier-Mail before working in Hong Kong for three years on the South China Morning Post. He joined the Australian Financial Review in Sydney upon returning to Australia and then pioneered specialist finance journalism in commercial broadcasting - first with the Macquarie Radio network, then with Channel 9, Sky News and 7.
Michael has four sons, maintains a love of Rugby Union, a dislike of gardening and what he calls "an outlook of optimistic scepticism".
'Michael Pascoe brings the right amount of personality and life to an otherwise sober session.
