The numbers of Scottish businesses and economic policy

Alexander Dow, Catherine Kirk, Brian Ashcroft (Editor)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Recent constitutional changes in Scotland have not altered the emphasis on economic development, which is central to public policy. In common with the rest of the UK and the USA there has been an emphasis on small business policy for this purpose. In particular, there has been an attempt to improve the rate of business formation sponsored by Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise. As this policy has been in place now for seven years it is possible to look critically at the outcomes over five years of data to assess what progress, if any, is being made.
