Susan Berfield is an award-winning feature writer and investigative reporter for Bloomberg Businessweek and Bloomberg News where she’s exposed how Walmart spies on its workers, uncovered a con man who talked a small Missouri town out of millions, and revealed how Beverly Hills billionaires bought up an enormous water supply in the Central Valley.
She’s been interviewed on PBS NewsHour, NPR's All Things Considered, Marketplace, On Point, and the Brian Lehrer Show. Her story about the biggest food fraud in US history was the basis for an episode of the Netflix documentary series, Rotten.
The Hour of Fate, her first book, was supported by a Logan Nonfiction Fellowship.
