  10. Michael Hudson is a senior editor at ICIJ. He has been an editor and reporter at the ICIJ since 2012, working on ICIJ’s ground-breaking investigations of offshore financial secrecy and the global trade in human tissue, and leading ICIJ's World Bank investigation. He previously worked as a reporter for the Center for Public Integrity, the Wall Street Journal and the Roanoke (Va.) Times and as investigative editor for Southern Exposure Magazine. His work has also appeared in Forbes, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, Le Monde, El País and many other publications. His two decades of reporting on mortgage and banking fraud has prompted media observers to call him the reporter “who beat the world on subprime abuses,” the “guru of all things predatory lending” and the “Woodward/Bernstein of the mortgage crisis.” His reporting has won or shared many honors, including an Investigative Editors and Reporters Award, a Sigma Delta Chi Award, two George Polk Awards, a John Hancock Award for business journalism and accolades from the National Press Club, the White House Correspondents’ Association, the American Bar Association, the New York Press Club and the New York State Society of CPAs. His most recent book, The Monster: How a Gang of Predatory Lenders and Wall Street Bankers Fleeced America—and Spawned a Global Crisis (Times Books, 2010), was named Baltimore City Paper Book of the Year and was called “essential reading for anyone concerned with the mortgage crisis” by Library Journal.
