Summary:
Of the thirty(30) senior executives of the major think tanks, nineteen(19) are Jews or have Jewish spouses. This is a numerical representation of 63%. Jews are approximately 2% of the U.S. population.* Therefore Jews are over-represented among the senior executives of the major think tanks by a factor of 31.5 times(3,150 percent).

    Hello
    I doubt that Mr. Raisian is Armenian. His last name ends in ian but that does not mean he is Armenian.
    Please double-check. There is no such Armenian name as Raisian.

      Well, David, I’m glad you brought this up, because I had a bit of trouble with this one. When I was making this list, I discovered that “Raisin” is an Ashkenazi Jewish name. I assumed that “Raisian” was just a slight variation of that name, and so I listed John Raisian as a Jew. But then I discovered a few Armenians on the internet named “Raisian”, and I knew I was wrong. I then found this page that lists “Raisian” as an Armenian surname:
