About the Author

Peter S. Goodman is the Global Economics Correspondent for the New York Times, based in London. He was previously the NYT's national economics correspondent, based in New York, where he played a leading role in the paper's award-winning coverage of the Great Recession, including a series that was a Pulitzer finalist. Previously, he covered the Internet bubble and bust as the Washington Post's telecommunications reporter, and served as WashPo's China-based Asian economics correspondent. He is the author of Past Due: The End of Easy Money and the Renewal of the American Economy. He graduated from Reed College and completed a master's in Vietnamese history from the University of California, Berkeley.


A biting, uproarious yet vital and deadly serious account of the profound damage the billionaire class is inflicting on the world. Peter Goodman guides the reader through the hidden stories and twisted beliefs of some of the titans of finance and industry, who continually rationalize their bad behavior to themselves. Such a depressing account is only palatable with the humor and knowledge that this essential writer brings to the topic.--Joseph E. Stiglitz, recipient of the Nobel Prize in Economics
Unflinching and authoritative, Peter Goodman's Davos Man will be read a hundred years from now as a warning, bellowed from the blessed side of the velvet rope, about a slow-motion scandal that spans the globe. Deliciously rich with searing detail, the clarity is reminiscent of Tom Wolfe, let loose in the Alps, in search of hypocrisies and vanities.--Evan Osnos, author of Age of Ambition, winner of the National Book Award
