The Peterson Institute, which Dr. Bergsten directed for its first 32 years, is the only major research institution in the United States devoted exclusively to international economic issues. It was selected as the "Top Think Tank in the World" in 2008 by one survey and in 2011 by another. Dr. Bergsten was the most widely quoted think-tank economist in the world from 1997 to 2005, and has been cited as #37 of the top 50 "Who Really Moves the Markets?" (Fidelity) and as "one of the ten people who can change your life" by USA Today. Dr. Bergsten has authored, coauthored, edited or coedited 41 books on international economic issues.* In recognition of his accomplishments, intellectual contributions and impact, and his enduring legacy at the Peterson Institute, the National Foreign Trade Council Foundation is proud to present Dr. Bergsten with the 2013 World Trade Award.
