Both New York City and New York State need a policy revolution to ensure their future prosperity.  A new, special of issue of City Journal"New York's Tomorrow," offers the ideas that should drive that revolution.  It provides a blueprint for how New York can successfully overcome the economic crisis in the aftermath of the Wall Street meltdown and recreate itself to be competitive in the 21st century.
 
"In 'New York's Tomorrow,' some of the best policy minds in the nation provide a detailed blueprint for making the state and the city prosperous, thriving places of long-term growth," editor Brian C. Anderson writes in his introduction to the issue. 

Among other things, he continues, it "covers not just New York's fiscal woes -- though it shows in clear, achievable steps how to ease those woes -- but myriad other areas crying out for reform.  These include the state's absurdly high energy costs, which repel manufacturers from an already-near-death upstate economy ...; the city's vulnerability to litigation ...; the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's ridiculous inefficiencies, which deprive it of funds for crucial long-term infrastructure investments ...; and the city's antidemocratic politics ...."

City Journal is published by the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research in New York City, which is substantially supported by The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee.
