Peterson Institute Discloses Funding Sources

Amid pressure by various groups to disclose funding sources, the Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE) has quietly released a 10-page document outlining its funders, with details from 2010-2013.

The conclusion is no suprise: PIIE relies heavily on foreign sources of funding.  The document shows that in 2013 the think tank received 43 percent of its funding from non-US sources.

As loyal Think Tank Watch readers are well aware, many current and former foreign government officials are connected to PIIE.
