18. Why I’m Disgusted With Warren Buffett – Alan Kohler

In by EquityMates1 Comment

For Australians, there is probably no name or face more synonymous with investing and financial journalism than Alan Kohler. A long history of financial journalism has culminated in Alan doing the financial section of the 7 o’clock ABC news, and being known for his weekend overviews. In my house growing up, the 7 o’clock news was always watched, and Alan was known as the ‘graph man’ as he has become known for the interesting and insightful charts he shows viewers. Prior to being the face of finance on the ABC, Alan has had a long and storied career in financial journalism, including a stint as editor of the Australian Financial Review from 1985 to 1988. We were lucky enough to sit down with Alan and discuss all things investing.
