For more than 50 years The Australian Financial Review (AFR) has been the authority on business, finance and investment news in Australia. It has a reputation for independent, award-winning journalism and is essential reading for Australia’s business and investor community.

Michael Stutchbury has been writing and editing on business, economics and politics for national newspapers in Australia for the past three decades. From working in the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet in the early 1980s to editing both Australia's national daily newspapers, Michael has been intimately engaged with the relationship between business, politics and the media. He offers a unique perspective on what will drive Australia's business economy and the national debate under a new government and the next stage of our resources boom.

Michael’s distinguished career included a period as Economics Editor, AFR, covering the Hawke-Keating economic reform program of the 1980s. Michael became Washington correspondent in 1993, covering the first term of the Clinton administration. Returning to Sydney in 1997, he became opinion editor for the paper.

Michael moved to The Australian newspaper in 1998 as Deputy Editor (business) to build up the newspaper's business coverage before being appointed Editor from 2001 to 2006.  He became Economics Editor in 2008 before returning to AFR as Editor-in-Chief.
