The Manhattan Institute has decided to wind down Publicsectorinc.org, as part of a broad, institution-wide effort to consolidate our various platforms. The last date of publication will be two weeks from now, on December 15th.
PSI went live in late 2010, when the pension and public employee union issues were just beginning to take off. We’re proud of the coverage and analysis PSI provided of the Rhode Island pension reform, the attempted recall of Scott Walker, Detroit’s bankruptcy, and many other topics related to state and local governments’ fiscal struggles. We at the Manhattan Institute expect those struggles to continue, and thus will be increasing our efforts to inform the debate and shape policymaking, along with refocusing them.
