Developing our economic forecast: Demographic Change

We are holding an event in preparation for our next economic forecast

The Scottish Fiscal Commission will publish its next economic forecasts for Scotland alongside the upcoming Scottish Budget. In its previous forecasts, the Commission described a subdued economic outlook, and in particular focused on slow growth in wages over the last several years.

Come along to our event in Edinburgh on 22 October 2018 and find out more about the Commission's research. We will talk about how we think wage growth is changing, the demographic and inter-generational aspects of this, how this affects our outlook for the economy, and how this impacts on income tax revenues.

We’ll do some presentations, followed by some open working groups where we will be looking to get your views on these important issues. It is designed to be a knowledge exchange event under Chatham House rules to allow full and frank discussion.

Tea and coffee will be provided. Register here.
