With the continuation of a policy of high interest rates as a method of reducing consumer demand, Scotland continues to show clear signs of outperforming the UK. Confidence in manufacturing, and especially in retailing, has recovered over recent months because the expected downturn has failed to become reality as quickly as had been expected.
