Charting a Just and Sustainable Recovery for Scotland: A Plan for Scotland’s Programme for Government
“Moving forward on Scotland’s path to recovery will prove challenging and require bold action, as we navigate this multitude of intertwined crises. Out of this crisis, a new economic vision is needed to build a more equitable, sustainable, and democratic system. As the Scottish Government prepares to set out its Programme for Government, how it chooses to respond to this crisis at this critical juncture will not only shape the nature of the economic recovery – it will also be a key indicator of Scotland’s willingness to chart a different course.”
Macfarlane and Brett propose a bold recovery strategy for Scotland that prioritizes a green and just recovery, expanding community wealth building, banking for the public good, tenant protection and social housing, securing democratic public ownership, and stewarding land.
