Jan Svejnar going to found a think tank

Speculations on whether Jan Svejnar will become a member of the Czech senate proved as wrong, as Svejnar announced the LN he finally wants not to go to senate. Instead, he is going to found non-profit association, so called ‘think tank’. “What we are missing is sometning called think tank, or an institution which is independent, non-profit, above parties, not included into any political party, but acts in public life by gathering and analyzing information, studying analysis.” Svejnar describes.

Concerning the next presidential vote, he said (for LN again) he would ‘pack it in’ again. He didn’t meet with Klaus again, but when they parted, “We shake each other hand and said we will see each other in the future.” and even when they talked indiscriminately about each other, he doesn’t feel hate for the present president; “It was a normal competitive load.”

A think tank (also called a policy institute) is an organization, institute, corporation, or group that conducts research and engages in advocacy in areas such as social policy, political strategy, economy, science or technology issues, industrial or business policies, or military advice. Many think tanks are non-profit organizations, which in some countries such as the US and Canada provides them with tax exempt status. While many think tanks are funded by governments, interest groups, or businesses, some think tanks also derive income from consulting or research work related to their mandate. (Wikipedia)
