Abstract

It is desirable to maximise the inflow of investment to Scotland. Over the next few years indigenous investment will not be sufficient to prevent a considerable rise in unemployment. To ameliorate this increase, the attraction of inward investment ought therefore to be a prime target of policy. This paper addresses the question of whether the present institutional structure ensures that the aim of maximising this inflow of capital is achieved.
