yesterday's Times had an article about the rise of a new political party in Spain which said the following:
"Having an ambivalent stance on Catalan independence has really hurt Podemos," said Federico Santi, political risk analyst at Eurasia Group, a think tank based in London. "They've not really managed the step from protest party and critic of the main parties to one that can build its own platform."
The problem here is that Eurasia Group is neither a think-tank -- it's a for-profit consultancy (it describes itself as a "political risk research and consulting firm") -- nor based in London. While it has an office in London, its headquarters, as plainly stated on its website, is New York City.
