Peter Goodman is the global economic correspondent for The New York Times, based in London. He was previously the Global Editor-in-Chief of the International Business Times, based in New York, and the Executive Global News and Business Editor of the Huffington Post, where he transformed a publication centered on aggregation into a prize-winning source of investigative reporting.

Over the course of three decades in journalism, Peter Goodman has covered some of the most momentous economic transformations and crises – the Great Recession, as the New York-based national economic correspondent for the Times; the emergence of China into a global superpower as the Shanghai bureau chief for The Washington Post; the advent of the Web followed by the dot-com crash as a technology reporter for the Post, based in Washington. From London, he has written about Brexit, the rise of right-wing populism in Europe, the crises in Turkey in Argentina, the impacts of the global trade war pursued by the Trump administration, and the unfolding catastrophe of the coronavirus pandemic.

Peter Goodman has reported from more than 40 countries on six continents, including stints in conflict zones such as Iraq, Cambodia, Sudan and East Timor. He appears regularly on The Daily, the Times popular podcast, as well as major broadcast outlets like the BBC, Sky News, CNN, MSNBC, and Monocle Radio.

He has been recognized with some of journalism’s top honors, including two Gerald Loeb awards (commonly described as the Pulitzers of business reporting). His work in China received a citation from the Overseas Press Club. His coverage of the Indian Ocean tsunami garnered a prize for breaking news from the American Society of Newspaper Editors. His work as part of the Times’ series on the roots of the 2008 financial crisis was a finalist for the Pulitzer.

His book, PAST DUE: The End of Easy Money and the Renewal of the American Economy (Times Books, 2009), received critical acclaim, including inclusion on Bloomberg’s annual list of top 50 business titles.
