David Bornstein is a journalist and author who specialises in writing about social innovation. He is the founder of dowser.org, a news site that reports on social innovation.

David currently co-authors the Fixes column in The New York Times Opinionator section, which explores and analyses potential solutions to major social problems. He is also the co-founder of the Solutions Journalism Network, which supports journalists who report on constructive responses to social problems.

David’s first book, “The Price of a Dream: The Story of the Grameen Bank” (Oxford University Press, 2005), traces the history of the Nobel Peace Prize-winning Grameen Bank during its first 20 years and describes the global emergence of the now-famous anti-poverty strategy known as “micro-finance.”
