Fee Range: C

Michael Pascoe is one of Australia�s most experienced and thoughtful finance and economics commentators with the better part of five decades in newspaper, broadcast and on-line journalism, covering the full gamut of economic and business issues, as well as occasionally straying into more whimsical matters of the human condition. Despite being a reporter of the �dismal science�, he maintains a sense of humour and the ability to speak and write entertainingly about the state of the nation and world. �I�ve sat through too many boring economics and business presentations to think anyone else should have to,� he says. Increasingly, Pascoe�s body of work represents a fight for keeping perspective amidst the noise and haste of a news cycle with a painfully short attention span and sometimes dubious motives. �There�s more data but less information, more opinion but less thought,� he says. �It�s never been more important to look through the headlines and political prejudices to find the facts.�

Michael Pascoe is contributing editor for The New Daily, a regular guest commentator on radio and television in demand as a speaker and facilitator.
