Scotland the Brief

Learn about Scotland’s economy with bite-sized infographics and sketches. These facts will demonstrate Scotland’s economic strengths and the opportunities for communities and sectors that come with independence.

Every week, fact rich graphics will be published and shared on our social media and website. These facts will help people both understand and believe in Scotland’s economy. We have also teamed up with artist Wee Skribbles to create a series of sketches as part of the project.



With thanks to our crowdfunder backers who donated generously to ensure our Scotland the Brief project and research is a success.
