Scotland the Brief began as a collection of illustrated Scottish economic facts published by Business for Scotland. Over two years, those graphics generated more than four million views and shares on our website and via social media. From that foundation, we’ve produced this book.

We have now sold more than 50,000 hard copies of the book between the Mini and Maxi editions.  The PDF version has been updated in June 2021 . Both the Mini and the Maxi version will be updated in October 2022 following the 20/21 Government and Revenue Scotland Report publication.

Scotland the Brief summarises an in-depth investigation into the breadth, structure and quality of Scotland’s economy. It is written in layman’s terms by Gordon MacIntyre-Kemp and colourfully illustrated by Stewart Bremner to make it easy to understand and absorb, as well as fun to read.

And finally, If you are already a supporter of Scottish independence please pledge your support and then share the pledge page with fellow independence supporters so they can get their own copies.  We will email you when the second edition becomes available.
