It is five months since the last forecasts of the Scottish economy were published in the Fraser Economic Commentary. In that time, we have seen confirmation that Q2 growth was down 0.8% on Q1 2009, meaning that Scotland has now seen four quarters of consecutive negative growth. The rate of negative growth appears to have slowed, with Q1 2009 seeing a 2.5% quarterly reduction. Scottish GDP in Q2 was down 6.1% from its peak in Q2 2009.
