David Brooks
"Democracy: Choices and Challenges"

Long considered one of America's most influential thought leaders, David Brooks has been an opinion columnist for The New York Times since 2003. He is a bestselling author and analyst on PBS NewsHour, National Public Radio’s All Things Considered, and NBC’s Meet the Press. His fifth book, The Second Mountain: The Quest for a Moral Life, was published in 2019.

A contributing writer to The Atlantic, Brooks most recently published a column titled “How the Bobos Broke America,” in which he posits that the creation of a new elite — sometimes dubbed the “creative class” — has replaced the old elite, sparking a counterreaction among working class voters against a meritocratic system. In 2018, Brooks joined the Aspen Institute to spearhead the Weave project, aimed at bridging the divisions among Americans and seeking a compelling common ground. He teaches at Yale University and is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
