Top 10 Think Tanks In The World

Based on the latest statistics, Brookings Institution is considered the world's top think tank.  Of course, no survey is perfect and the results should be taken with a grain of salt.  Some have said that this particular survey (which is considered the most comprehensive in the world) is US-centric.  The theory is that because so many think tanks are American, the respondents were disproportionately American.
