William Greider

National Affairs Correspondent


William Greider, a prominent political journalist and author, has been a reporter for more than 35 years for newspapers, magazines and television. Over the past two decades, he has persistently challenged mainstream thinking on economics.

For 17 years Greider was the National Affairs Editor at Rolling Stone magazine, where his investigation of the defense establishment began. He is a former assistant managing editor at the Washington Post, where he worked for fifteen years as a national correspondent, editor and columnist. While at the Post, he broke the story of how David Stockman, Ronald Reagan's budget director, grew disillusioned with supply-side economics and the budget deficits that policy caused, which still burden the American economy.

He is the author of the national bestsellers One World, Ready or Not, Secrets of the Temple and Who Will Tell The People. In the award-winning Secrets of the Temple, he offered a critique of the Federal Reserve system. Greider has also served as a correspondent for six Frontline documentaries on PBS, including "Return to Beirut," which won an Emmy in 1985.

Greider's most recent book is The Soul of Capitalism: Opening Paths to A Moral Economy. In it, he untangles the systemic mysteries of American capitalism, details its destructive collisions with society and demonstrates how people can achieve decisive influence to reform the system's structure and operating values.

Raised in Wyoming, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati, he graduated from Princeton University in 1958. He currently lives in Washington, DC.

  • Bonfire of the Vanities

    November 25, 2008 Subscribe

    Timothy Geithner is responsible for much of the generous deal-making now underway with Wall Street. If Obama's not careful, he will be blamed.

  • Past and Future

    November 24, 2008

    Obama's too smart to allow the ideas of the past to define his presidency. Yet Timothy Geithner is an architect and enabler of the unfolding crisis.

  • Time for a Bank Holiday

    November 19, 2008

    No more free money from Washington. No more masters of the universe. No more business as usual.

  • This Proud Moment

    November 4, 2008

    Against all odds, Obama persuaded a majority of Americans to believe in their own better natures. By electing him, the people helped make it true.

    September 26, 2008

  • Show Us the Money

    September 24, 2008

    Something needs to be done--something fair for the American taxpayer--to salvage Wall Street. We want the same deal Warren Buffet got.

  • Goldman Sachs Socialism

    September 24, 2008 Subscribe

    Rescuing America from irresponsible Wall Street is worth at least what it costs to save the bloodied bankers.

  • Goldman Sachs Socialism

    September 23, 2008

    Instead of handing Bernanke $700 billion with no strings attached, government should take over the banking and finance sector, clean it up and start funneling money into the real economy.

  • Paulson Bailout Plan a Historic Swindle

    September 19, 2008

    Paulson's rescue plan represents a historic swindle--all sugar for the villains, lasting pain for the rest of us. Don't let Wall Street get away with this without enacting significant reform.

    We are flirting with catastrophe, and our foreign creditors are part of the story.

  • The Future Is Now

    June 8, 2006

  • The President Is Not Smiling

    March 28, 2006

    Card is out, Bolten in. The Senate is stuck on immigration. And every day brings more bad news. Take care of this, will you, Josh?

  • Learning to Love the Bomb

    March 20, 2006

    Could the world learn to live with a nuclear Iran? A new power equation of nuclear proliferation is emerging to challenge the Bush Administration's bluster on the subject.

  • A Peculiar Politician

    March 14, 2006

    Senator Russell Feingold should be praised for calling on the Senate to censure the President for breaking the law and lying about his domestic spying program. Instead, he's mocked by the media and abandoned by many of his own party.

  • Will Greenspan Tell the Truth?

    March 8, 2006

    A Greenspan memoir will do fine in the marketplace. It is the kind of Important Book daughters buy for father's birthday. In the unlikely event Greenspan tells the truth, it would be a sensational bestseller.

  • Olympic Swagger

    February 28, 2006

    Swagger was America's chosen posture at the Winter Olympics. Once again, sport imitated life: boasting got us nowhere at the Turin games or in the world.

  • The Boy Who Cried Wolf

    February 23, 2006

    The Dubai Ports flap is bogus, but it's fun to see Democrats and Republicans frothing in unison. Hysteria has defined the Bush presidency; now the fearmonger-in-chief is getting a taste of his own tactics.

  • A Warning Bell

    February 2, 2006 Subscribe

  • Apollo Now

    December 14, 2005 Subscribe

    Industrial society is on a collision course with nature. The devastation of New Orleans is a metaphor for what can happen next to us all. Will America decide to reshape the future in positive terms, or sit back and wait for the inevitable destruction to occur?

  • All the King's Media

    November 2, 2005

    The scandals suffocating the Bush Administration seem less like Nixon and Watergate and more like Louis XV and pre-Revolutionary France. They are harbingers of a potent cultural event that may jolt the public out of complacency.

  • Squeezing the Have-Nots

    October 13, 2005

    Fitful efforts to rebuild the Gulf Coast unfold against a backdrop of looming economic disaster: rising unemployment and interest rates, misplaced priorities and a recession that will hurt the weakest most.

  • A 'New' New Deal

    September 15, 2005

Occupation Journalist, Author

Notable credit(s)  

William Greider is an American journalist and author who writes primarily about economics.

His most recent book is The Soul of Capitalism: Opening Paths to a Moral Economy, which explores the basis and history of the corporation and how people can influence further development of it. He is national affairs correspondent for The Nation[1], a liberal political weekly. Prior to his work at The Nation, he wrote for Rolling Stone magazine during the 1980s and 1990s, and worked as an on-air correspondent for Frontline on PBS.[2]

Greider also wrote a major book on globalization -- One World, Ready or Not: The Manic Logic of Global Capitalism (1997) -- which described the underlying vulnerabilities and inequities of the global economy. The credibility of this work was heavily criticized by economist Paul Krugman, who claimed that Greider ignored the fallacies of composition that run rampant in the work, misinterpreted facts (some of which were incorrect), and misled readers with false assumptions - all possibly due to his lack of consultation with economists.[3]

A former reporter and editor at the Washington Post, Greider is credited with coining the term "Nader's Raiders" in a Post article dated November 13, 1968.[4] During an October 1, 2008 broadcast interview[5] on the impending passage of the "Wall Street bailout" despite widespread public opposition. Greider observed:

(T)his is a very revealing moment in American democracy. We’re seeing the real deformities and power alignments that govern issues like this, particularly the financial system. (A)ll of the power centers in politics and finance and business are discredited by these events. (W)e had this moment Monday (September 29, 2008) when, for complicated political reasons, a majority in the House rose up and said no. (O)f course...the broad public...regards this bailout as a swindle and backwards. (The public wonders 'w)hy are you giving all this money to the people who caused this crisis and taking the money from the public assets of the victims?'"[6]
