HOP 95. Instinct or Analysis; are they Choices for Scotland

Ian Byatt

2012 Annual lecture by Sir Ian Byatt. This lecture brought together Sir Ian’s decades of experience as an influential economist with his respect for Hume and Adam Smith. In sum ‘My plan is to use my lifetime experience of practicing economics in government, in the Treasury, in other Government Departments, and as a water regulator, to draw out lessons, and tips, to guide those applying economics to issues of public policy, especially the issues facing Scotland today.’
