Quality. Independence. Impact.
The Brookings Institution is a nonprofit public policy organization based in Washington, DC. Our mission is to conduct high-quality, independent research and, based on that research, to provide innovative, practical recommendations that advance three broad goals:
Strengthen American democracy;
Foster the economic and social welfare, security and opportunity of all Americans; and
Secure a more open, safe, prosperous and cooperative international system.
Brookings is proud to be consistently ranked as the most influential, most quoted and most trusted think tank.
While Hudson Institute effected the Global policy this one effects American Domestic Policy.
Here’s more and what they say other say about them.
Brookings is proud that many consider us to be the most influential, most quoted and most trusted think tank in the world. Our high-quality research, our independence and our convening power help generate innovative, practical solutions to today’s challenges.

Trust and Impact
“Brookings has achieved a special measure of respect in Washington because it has risen above partisanship, and that is not an easy thing to do in this town which is sort of built on partisanship.”
—Hon. Michael Bloomberg, Mayor, City of New York, August 28, 2007
Among 16 organizations with high impact on public policy, a Harris Poll found Brookings is:
among the five most powerful
among the ten most trusted
equally trusted by Democrats, Republicans and Independents.

Now all this is being taken from their site folks. This is what they are saying about themselves.
They are humanistic and progressive as are all who are liked by the Global Community… they don’t espouse Christ. They are not for Christian America.
