Respected and experienced finance and economics commentator.


Michael Pascoe is one of Australia's most respected and experienced finance and economics commentators with four decades in newspaper, broadcast and on-line journalism covering the full gamut of economic, business and finance issues.

Current work

He's most recognised through his many years spent reporting on business and finance on Channel 9 and 7, in addition to his past role as Contributing Editor for the Sydney Morning Herald and Age. He’s now contributing editor for The New Daily and regularly seen as a commentator on the ABC’s The Drum and 7’s Sunrise and other programs.

He is a popular conference speaker and MC, bringing rare humour and plain language to the 'dismal science' of economics.

Previous experience
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.
