William Greider


During 40 years of covering politics and economics as a reporter and best-selling author, William Greider has followed the money like a bloodhound. From the White House to Wall Street, Greider examines power — who has it and who doesn’t. Currently the national affairs correspondent for The Nation, Greider is a former editor for Rolling Stone and The Washington Post.

Among his best-known works is The Education of David Stockman and Other Americans, his controversial account of the Reagan administration and Reaganomics, based on his 1981 private interviews with Reagan’s budget director. He is also the author of the national best-sellers One World Ready or Not: The Manic Logic of Global Capitalism, Secrets of the Temple, Who Will Tell The People?: The Betrayal Of American Democracy, and The Soul of Capitalism: Opening Paths to a Moral Economy.

His latest book is Come Home, America: The Rise and Fall (and Redeeming Promise) of Our Country.
