In this pamphlet Wendy Alexander analyses how Scotland can build its own economic success by becoming a ‘Tartan Tiger’. Through her original and insightful research she seeks to draw on the lessons that Scotland can learn from the successes and failures of the Irish ‘economic miracle’. She argues that what is needed is for Scotland to ‘do a Scotland’, and thereby create its own economic success and deliver real change which rises above the rhetoric of so much of the debate. The pamphlet sets out a long-term road map for change, where: self-belief matters; economic goals will temporarily take precedence; and there is a greater emphasis of consensus-building on the economy, above domestic division.
