“Inclusive Growth” is the new approach to economic policy in Scotland. This Perspective summarises the thinking underlying this approach, including whether and how far it reflects a substantive change in policy. It suggests how the issues raised will frame economic policy in Scotland over the 2016-2021 Parliament, and underlines the importance of work based learning, as one example of how the Scottish Government is putting inclusive growth into practice. It concludes that a broad perspective is required to promote prosperity and address inequality in Scotland in an integrated way.
