Stephen Yeo, consultant at International Crowth Centre, is talking about the role of think tanks

“The role of Think Tanks for me is quite simple. The reason they exist is that we want better policies, public policy and we think that evidence informed decision making is better then making decisions  without any evidence or research data. And Think tanks exists to  promote evidence based decision making. ” – Stephen Yeo
