Scotland in the UK economy

Keith P D Ingham, J Love

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The close ties with RUK dominate the Scottish economy in many ways; for example, large British firms, the nationalized and publicly owned industries and the UK civil service are among the largest employers in Scotland and the bulk of Scottish trade is with RUK. How does Scotland fare compared with other regions of the UK? How can we account for Scotland's relative performance as a region of the UK? What type of adjustment takes place in response to problems faced by Scotland? During the 1960s and 1970s there was a revival of nationalism in Scotland. While it was also based on historical, social and cultural issues, that revival, which has now largely
abated, concentrated a great deal of attention on these questions.
