Biography

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.”

He is also the author of “How to Change the World: Social Entrepreneurs and the Power of New Ideas” (Oxford University Press, 2007) which was described by The New York Times as a “must read” for “anyone who cares about building a more equitable and stable world.” The book, which has been published (or is in the process of being published) in 20 languages, chronicles and analyses the work of social innovators who are successfully addressing social problems at scale in several countries. He is currently completing a book on social innovation in the U.S. and Canada.
