Peter S. Goodman, global economic correspondent for The New York Times, will join the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute for a virtual conversation at 10:00 a.m. CT Monday, May 23.
Goodman and Institute Director John Shaw will discuss Goodman’s book "Davos Man: How the Billionaires Devoured the World" and his reporting on the supply chain, income inequality, and the fragile state of the global economy.
Goodman has been a journalist for more than 30 years and was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for his reporting on the origins of the 2008 financial crisis. Before he joined The New York Times, he was the executive global news and business editor for the Huffington Post. He previously was the Shanghai bureau chief for The Washington Post. He began his journalism career in Asia and was a reporter for the Anchorage Daily News in Alaska.
"Davos Man" was published in January. The book investigates how five so-called “Davos men” — members of the billionaire class — exploited the COVID-19 pandemic and how those exploits had worldwide impacts.
This event is part of the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute’s Understanding Our New World virtual conversation series with government and private sector leaders, policy experts, political analysts, authors, and journalists.
