How do we think differently about the Scottish economy, wealth and progress, and the world of work? What would a different kind of economy look like, and what implications would it have? And how do we begin to reframe the ideas of work and economy away from the grotesque assumptions of `bubble Britain?' Experts in their fields, Boyd, Trebeck & Thompson come together to analyse the positives and negatives of changing the status quo.
