Sustainable growth for Scotland
Who would be a politician?
MSPs face a challenging number of years following this year Scottish Parliament elections. Reductions in public spending, combined with likely rises in unemployment and a squeeze on capital expenditure, mean that political achievement will be measured, to a large extent, by ensuring the delivery of value and effectively managing budgets.
At times like these, an expertise in finance and measurement is truly valued. That is why ICAS has created, for the first time, a pre-election briefing that seeks to offer MSPs our distinctive views on a number of significant areas of devolved responsibility.
We hope these ideas can help all political parties to build a better and more sustainable Scotland in years ahead.
