What is Scotland the Brief?

Business for Scotland is probably best known in recent times for its publication Scotland the Brief, which makes the economic case for Scottish independence and has sold over 70,000 copies in total, with the second edition being published in November 2022.

Scotland the Brief is sold at a wholesale price to Local Yes Groups who can then sell the book through their Yes hubs/shops and we estimate this combined with linked fundraising has raised more than £40,000 to help fund local activities. We have also, on occasion, directly donated to Yes Groups to help pay for billboards and events and provided free campaign materials and fundraising packs to more than 100 Local Yes Groups.
