Education and career
Goodhart was a correspondent for the Financial Times for 12 years; in part of the period he was stationed in Germany. He founded Prospect, a British current affairs magazine in 1995 and was the editor until 2010, when he became editor-at-large. In December, 2011, David Goodhart started as director of the London based think tank Demos.
Goodhart has produced several radio documentaries for the BBC on subjects ranging from the rise of Blue Labour to mass immigration. He has frequently written for The Guardian, The Independent and The Times. In April, 2013, he published the book The British Dream: Successes and Failures of Post-war Immigration where he argues that high immigration can undermine national solidarity and be a threat to social democratic ideals about a welfare state. He advocates that immigration to the United Kingdom should be reduced and more emphasis put on integrating immigrants. In August 2014, Goodhart was one of 200 public figures who were signatories to a letter to The Guardian opposing Scottish independence in the run-up to September's referendum on that issue.
