Biography-Anthony B. Kim 
Senior Policy Analyst
Center for International Trade and Economics

Anthony B. Kim researches international economic issues with a focus on economic freedom and free trade at The Heritage Foundation. As Senior Policy Analyst in Heritage's Center for International Trade and Economics (CITE), Kim assumes the primary responsibility of coordinating the complex research and production process for the Index of Economic Freedom.

The Index is co-published annually with The Wall Street Journal. It tracks the march of economic freedom around the world by measuring 10 freedoms – from property rights to entrepreneurship – in 185 countries. In 2007, after a decade of publishing the Index, Heritage executives decided that the Index needed changes to make it more accessible to more people - from the congressional staffer to the college student, from the policy maker to the financial adviser.

As one of the handful of Heritage experts who grades the Index's countries, Kim helped oversee those changes and his work earned him Heritage's prestigious Drs. W. Glenn and Rita Ricardo Campbell Award in 2007. The award is given to the employee who has delivered "an outstanding contribution to the analysis and promotion of a Free Society."

His commentary and opinion pieces have been published by The Wall Street Journal Asia, The New York Post, The Washington Times, National Review Online, and, The Korea Herald among others. He has been also quoted in major U.S. and international media including The Financial Times, Associated Press, Agence France Presse, Fox Business News, Voice of America, and South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency.

Before joining Heritage in 2001, he studied economics at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N. J., and earned his master's degree in international trade and investment policy from the Elliott School of International Affairs at the George Washington University.
