Center for the New Economy (CNE)
CNE seeks to find solutions, and inform current debates, based on hard data and robust empirical research, to today’s most pressing and complex economic development problems. This stems from its belief that public policy should not be based on personal opinion or political preference but rather should be the product of careful analysis and independently verifiable research.
Since 2013, CNE has been recognized as one of the Top Think Tanks to Watch by the Global Think Tank Report of the University of Pennsylvania.
It seeks to be policy relevant, not policy neutral, and to inform the public in general, and policymakers in particular, about the major economic development issues of the day. It plays its part in generating ideas about improving the quality of life in Puerto Rico by producing actionable research and educating stakeholders on economic issues.
CNE’s analyses are sought-out by officials of the US Treasury, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the White House, and the US Congress intent on receiving balanced expertise and policy counsel on Puerto Rico and finding bipartisan options to the island’s fiscal predicament. CNE reports and analyses are also regularly covered by media from the United States, Latin America, Europe and Asia and are cited in numerous academic and policy publications. See more
