The Heartland Institute is a prolific publisher of books, booklets, policy studies, policy briefs, and “tip sheets” on the key issues facing America. We also publish Research & Commentary collections that collect the best available information on hot public policy issues and send them to elected officials, often within a day or two of a request. Search for these research materials at PolicyBot, Heartland's massive database of nearly 20,000 documents.
Heartland is unique among think tanks in its production of six monthly public policy newspapers dedicated to reporting on the latest developments in virtually all of the topic areas of concern to national, state, and local elected officials. These newspaper are: Budget & Tax News, Environment and Climate News, School Reform News, Health Care News, Infotech & Telecom News, and Finance, Insurance and Real Estate (FIRE) Policy News. They are sent in printed form or digitally to every national and state and some 8,400 county and local elected officials nationwide. Their content is combined and made available in advance of print publication in our digital magazine, the Heartlander.
Heartland hosts two blogs, Somewhat Reasonable, and Out Of The Storm News, that feature the thoughts and opinions of our large network of staff, editors, contributing editors, and senior fellows. A steady stream of op-eds, letters to the editor, and feature essays are also written and submitted to other publishers and Web sites for their use. These commentaries appear here.
