Where is the editor-at-large and futurist at Forbes, the world's most recognised business magazine, investing his money?

Rich Karlgaard, entrepreneur-turned-publisher, columnist, author, television commentator, private investor and board director, reveals the industries that he believes are in the gun. Disruption has only claimed "low hanging fruit" industries so far but we're about to reach the middle of the tree, he says.

Rich tells Rooster Radio that he's also interested in companies addressing all of the issues that are arising from our ever-increasing population growth, and what that means for Australia.

Rich offers a unique vantage point on the trends driving the business and investment climates. His insights will help you gain a greater understanding of the global marketplace.

Rich is a past winner of Ernst & Young’s “Entrepreneur of the Year Award,” and understands firsthand the difficulties of navigating in today’s business climate and the opportunities available to those who have the courage to reach out for them.

On Rooster Radio, Rich shares his assessment of technology and business trends, as well as global economic forces, current business and political issues and the drivers behind the key people and companies that are influencing our world.
