Steven Malanga Named George M. Yeager Fellow at the Manhattan Institute
NEW YORK, NY Steven Malanga has been named the George M. Yeager Fellow at the Manhattan Institute. For the past 15 years, Malanga has written on the intersection of city and state economies, public finance, and public policy for the Manhattan Institute and its quarterly magazine, City Journal, serving also as the magazine's senior editor.
The Manhattan Institute is deeply grateful for George M. Yeager's support of Malanga's critical work. This new fellowship will allow him to continue his relentless work on urban governance, while exploring new paths of research within his domain of public fiscal management and labor policy.
"Steven Malanga has long been a valued asset at the Institute, and his knowledge of state and local politics makes him an inimitable force in journalism," said Manhattan Institute President Lawrence Mone. "I am immensely thankful for Mr. Yeager's generosity and am excited to see where it takes Steven's work."
As one of the nation's leading voices on municipal finance, state and local politics, and public-sector unions, Malanga is the author of The New New Left: How American Politics Works Today (2005); and Shakedown: The Continuing Conspiracy Against the American Taxpayer (2010). More recently, he has focused his attention on the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, one of the country's most inefficiently managed government agencies.
