Reform Scotland

Economic Growth in Scotland: From Ideas to Policies – Professor David Simpson

This is the latest in a series of individual contributions to the publication, ‘Reforming Scotland’, which aims to set out a possible vision for Scotland’s future which can inform and influence the policy debate in the coming years. The contributions are by people from a range of different backgrounds and political perspectives who have looked at how policy could be reformed across a range of different areas and they represent the views of the authors and not those of Reform Scotland.

Professor David Simpson’s chapter defines the Scottish tradition of Political Economy; discusses the principles that govern current global thinking about economic growth; then considers the  application of these principles to the formation of economic policy.   Use the link below to read the full chapter.
