This week’s edition of Spotlight, the New Statesman’s award-winning policy supplement focuses on the Scottish economy.
Former leader of Scottish Labour and the outgoing MSP for Lothian, Kezia Dugdale, reflects on her decision to leave Holyrood for a think tank in Glasgow in an exclusive profile interview.
Co-convenor of the Scottish Green Party, Maggie Chapman, writes an op-ed on how climate change and social issues moved further up Scotland’s political agenda.
Special Projects Writer Jonny Ball, meanwhile, explains why a truly independent Scotland needs its own currency, and takes a closer look at the “Scotland effect” – why life expectancy is lower north of the border.
Spotlight is free with this week’s New Statesman, and stories will also be published on the Spotlight homepage.
