columnist

Brian Milner is a columnist with The Globe and Mail's Report on Business, writing about global market, corporate and economic issues. He began his journalism career as a sports and feature writer and editor in Canada, before moving to Paris, where he spent far more than he earned. Anxious to replenish his bank account, Mr. Milner took an editing job at The Globe, expecting to stay no more than two years. That was two decades ago.

He advanced through a series of editing assignments in the ROB, before switching back to writing in 1986. As a business reporter, he covered international trade and investment, the automotive industry, media, the debt markets and banking. He then spent two years as an associate managing editor in the ROB, before becoming The Globe's New York bureau chief in 1994. From his vantage point in the world's financial capital, he covered the greatest economic and stock market boom in modern history, as well as a raft of U.S. political, cultural and social topics. His profiles ranged from the likes of the Bronfmans and Hillary Clinton to TB-ridden slumdwellers in Newark.

Among his reporting coups over the years were a world exclusive on Seagram's acquisition of a vast Hollywood empire, CIBC's invasion of Wall Street and an extremely rare interview with reclusive Charles Bronfman, revealing for the first time why one of Canada's richest people decided he could no longer live in the country he still loves.

Mr. Milner began his current column in September, 2000, upon his return from New York. He is the author of a best-seller, The Hidden Establishment (Viking, 1991), which profiled secretive, wealthy immigrants from the Far East and other parts of the world and what they were up to in Canada. Most had never before consented to an interview and were largely unknown even to neighbours. He has also ghost-written and edited books on economic, social and sports subjects. The best known is Shifting Gears (Harper Collins 1993), one of the first books to examine the impact of the coming technological boom on the economy.

From 1988 to 1994, he was the Canadian correspondent for International Reports of London, specializing in political, fiscal, trade and currency topics. He was a frequent contributor during the same period to International Business magazine in New York and has been published in Barron's, Reader's Digest, Report on Business Magazine, Toronto Life, Korean Business and Tradepia of Japan. He is also a commentator on radio and television, with appearances on ROB-TV, Canada AM, CBC Newsworld and the BBC, among others.

He holds degrees in political science (York University) and journalism (Carleton) and has studied both French and Japanese. He has spoken about economic, political and trade issues to business and academic groups in Canada, the United States and Japan.

Mr. Milner lives in Toronto with his wife, Sylvie, who decided to become a psychotherapist after living in Manhattan for two days, and their perfectly bilingual daughter, Katrina.
