Goodman

PETER S. GOODMAN is the European economic correspondent for the New York Times, based in London.

Goodman began his journalism career in Southeast Asia, where he covered the war in Cambodia, Vietnam's early market-embracing reforms, and social ferment in Indonesia for several American and British publications, among them the Los Angeles Times, the Miami Herald and London’s Daily Telegraph.

After a three-year stint in Alaska at the Anchorage Daily News, he spent a decade at the Washington Post, chronicling the dot-com bubble of the late 1990s as a technology writer before moving to Shanghai to become the paper's Asian economic correspondent.

He joined the New York Times in the fall of 2007, covering the financial crisis and the Great Recession as the paper's national economic correspondent. He then oversaw business, technology, and international news at the Huffington Post and served as Global Editor-in-Chief of the International Business Times, helping to transform those sites into prize-winning purveyors of original investigative reporting. He returned to the New York Times in the spring of 2016.

Goodman has written and reported from three dozen countries including Iraq, Sudan, Turkey and Mexico while garnering two Loeb awards for business writing including the 2014 prize for commentary. He is the author of PAST DUE: The End of Easy Money and the Renewal of the American Economy (Times Books, 2009), honored by Bloomberg as one of the top business titles and lauded by the Nobel laureate economist Joseph Stiglitz.

Goodman appears frequently on British and American television and radio news programs and is a regular participant of the World Economic Forum in Davos. He lives in North London with his wife, novelist Deanna Fei, and their two children.
