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 newest edition of the book was published in November 2022 with updated information about the impact of Brexit, Scotland’s economic future and more. This PDF version has been updated to display the new edition.

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.
