Abstract

This briefing note summarises recent work funded by scotecon on using insights from economics to measure "sustainability" for Scotland. Our main finding is that according to green accounting measures, Scotland's development over much of the past 20 years has not, on the whole, matched up to the standards of sustainability. However, the national picture seems to have improved in the recent past.
