Is a Jew from Melbourne and born into fairly modest circumstances. See Samuel makes it personal. He went into merchant banking, became the boss of Grant Samuel, rich then walked away. He wanted power so he became a Victorian Football League Commissioner in 1984 and the chairman of Opera Australia which resulted in the closure of Victoria's own opera company [ sounds good - Editor ].
He now runs the ACCC [ Australian Competition and Consumer Commission ] and has taken on his biggest target so far, one Richard Pratt, the third richest man in Oz - behind Kerry Packer and Frank Lowy, who is also a Jew from Melbourne. This may not go down too well with others of his ilk.
