    Abstract

    In this latest Commentary, we reached out to a number of Scotland's leading economists, business leaders and poverty experts to get their views on the outlook for the Scottish economy and policy priorities. We are grateful for their time and insights. We explored 3 questions: i. How do you view the immediate outlook for the economy over the next 12 months? ii. What permanent changes to our economy do you see emerging from the crisis? iii. What should be the key area for policymakers to focus on at this time?
