Think Tanks

Think tanks are non-profit organizations created to research and promote public policy, often with a focus on a particular issue or espousing a particular political persuasion.  Think tanks employ lots of Ph.D.s who conduct resarch and write papers with the aim of influencing legislation.  They can be excellent sources of information as long as you keep in mind their purpose or agenda.
