Where did the phrase ‘think tank’ come from? According to Wikipedia it is “an organisation that conducts research and engages in advocacy in areas such as social policy, political strategy” – and the list continues. There are a number of wellknown think tanks such as Civitas – an organisation that has always seemed to me to produce some interesting and worthwhile reports. Perhaps controversial on occasions, but then you need a dissenting voice to keep the balance.
