About

This page is for listing known think-tank organizations.

List

Nonpartisan

  • Brookings Institution [W]: "Brookings describes itself as independent and non-partisan. A 2011 study examining think tank employee donations from 2003 to 2010 showed that 97.6% of Brookings's employees' political donations went to Democrats and described the think tank as "liberal." Yet, a 2005 academic study concluded it was centrist in that it was referenced as an authority almost equally by both conservative and liberal politicians in congressional records from 1993 to 2002."
  • New America Foundation [W]: "public policy institute and think tank focusing on a wide range of issues, including national security studies, technology, asset building, health, energy, education, and the economy" Chair of Board of Directors is Google's Eric Schmidt.[1][2]
