Analysis / Bias

In review, the Manhattan Institute’s website links to research topics, publications, and projects. News items provide a snippet from an external source that a member has contributed to and then provides a link to their site. Some of the sources they link to are mostly right-leaning such as The Dispatch, City journal, and the New York Post. Under the category research topics, they cover Urban Policy, Education, Energy & Environment, Health Policy, Legal Reform, Pubic Sector, Economics, and more. 

Editorially, the Manhattan Institute favors free-market capitalism such as this Saving Capitalism. When it comes to science they do not outright deny human-influenced climate change, but they do not agree with government solutions: Empty Theatrics on Climate Change. Reporting on President Trump and his handling of the economy is most often favorable such as this Trumped-Up Budgets
