"The North Sea was supposed to run out in the 1980s. Then in the 1990s. And now production is still on-line." -- Daniel Yergin
Daniel H. Yergin (born February 6, 1947) is an American author, speaker, and economic researcher. Yergin is the co-founder and chairman of Cambridge Energy Research Associates, an energy research consultancy. It was acquired by IHS Energy in 2004.

Born in Los Angeles, California to a Chicago Tribune reporter father and a mother who was a sculptor and painter, Yergin attended Beverly Hills High School. He received his B.A. from Yale University in 1968, where he served on the board of the Yale Daily News, and was a founder of The New Journal. He earned his Ph.D. in International Relations (1974) from Cambridge University where he was a Marshall Scholar. He also holds an honorary doctoral degree (1994) from the University of Houston.

Yergin's first major book, Shattered Peace, was a moderately 'revisionist' account of the origins of the Cold War that attributed it chiefly to "tragic misconceptions" on the part of American policymakers who, in the post-World War II years, embraced the "Riga axioms" of George F. Kennan, Loy W. Henderson, Charles E. Bohlen, and Elbridge Durbow rather than the "Yalta axioms" of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Shattered Peace was based on Yergin's Ph.D. dissertation.

Daniel Yergin is best known for The Epic Quest for Oil, Money, and Power, a number-one bestseller that won the Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction in 1992. The book was adapted into a PBS mini-series seen by more than 20 million viewers. Yergin was awarded the 1997 United States Energy Award for "lifelong achievements in energy and the promotion of international understanding." According to a biographical note in the March/April 2006 issue of Foreign Affairs, Yergin is currently at work on "a new book on oil and geopolitics."

Daniel Yergin also wrote and hosted a PBS production called "The Battle for the World Economy," based upon his book of the same name. This 3-part television production was a documentary about the economic history of the 20th century. Yergin interviewed many high profile people such as Dick Cheney, Bill Clinton, Newt Gingrich, and Robert Rubin, as well as economists such as John Kenneth Galbraith, Milton Friedman, and Jeffrey Sachs. The series presented economic history as a battle between centralized command economies and free market economies.
