This pamphlet is based on a lecture the Chancellor of the Exchequer gave to the Carnegie Foundation early in 2003, during which he discusses a vision of society that is entrepreneurial yet fair, dynamic and socially cohesive: “a vision that is at the same time pro-enterprise and pro community”. This monograph forms a part of the Institute’s ongoing interest on the issues affecting future prosperity in Scotland. What mechanisms need to be in place to allow Scotland’s world class businesses to thrive? How can the transfer of skills and knowledge be encouraged and facilitated between Scotland’s Higher Education institutions and its business community. What elements are necessary to maximise the growth and success of new companies in Scotland? In his discussion of the life and work of Andrew Carnegie, the Chancellor draws important lessons for the role of business in contemporary Scottish society.
