    Default Alan Hubbard's finances.

    I read an article in the business section of the Dompost today, unfortunately I can't find it on the Stuff website.
    It reported that auditors couldn't make any sense of one of the complicated transactions he had carried out, with no suggestion it was an isolated example.
    It made my brain hurt just reading it.
    To the layman it looked like smoke and mirrors.

    Sorry I cant help

    But I think I will ditch my computer and Excel spreadsheets and get one of those large desks he had with a calculator and an 80 years old secretary.

    He made billions that way!

    To no avail in the end.

    Sad thing is I know the guy they crashed into, I worked along side him on a few building sites about 5 years ago. Sad really I hope she wasn't trying to kill them both in some sort of pact
