The Manhattan Institute for Policy Research website declares:
|“|| For over 30 years, the Manhattan Institute has been an important force in shaping American political culture and developing ideas that foster economic choice and individual responsibility. We have supported and publicized research on our era's most challenging public policy issues: taxes, health care, energy, the legal system, policing, crime, homeland security, urban life, education, race, culture, and many others. Our work has won new respect for market-oriented policies and helped make reform a reality.
Located in New York City, the Manhattan Institute produces ideas that are both literally and figuratively outside the Beltway. We have cultivated a staff of senior fellows and writers whose provocative books, essays, reviews, interviews, speeches, and op-ed pieces communicate our message and influence the debate. These fellows work in the Institute's six policy centers, which study and promote reform in areas ranging from health care, higher education, legal policy, urban development, immigration, energy, and the economy."
Manhattan Institute for Policy Research publishes the City Journal which is a quarterly journal. Thomas Sowell referred to the City Journal as "Arguably America's best magazine".
