    Abstract

    The Scottish economy remains fragile. Although there is significant uncertainty over the immediate impact of the EU referendum outcome, most economists believe that the outlook has weakened as a result. The future direction of the Scottish and UK economies will have important implications for Scotland’s budget. Given recent data trends, Scotland will do well to match the UK’s performance in the near-term.
