Scots economy growth 'set to drop under 2%'
ECONOMIC growth in Scotland is set to moderate this year, dipping below two per cent before stabilising, a report today predicts.
According to the latest Bank of Scotland Index of Leading Economic Indicators,
weakening business and consumer confidence
will offset the positive effects that have sprung from strong housing activity, rising share prices and lower interest rates.

Lower interest rates eh? <_<:):D:lol::lol::lol:

Low interest rates have created this mess.

Why do anything in Scotland that can be done elsewhere cheaper? A very nice escape route - shutdown and flog off the land for redevelopment - enough to build a brand new factory and train a whole new set of staff.
