“The Scottish Government’s Council of Economic Advisers draws together some of the world’s foremost economists, academics and business people – including two Nobel Prize winners. I am delighted that four internationally renowned economists – Professor Joseph Stiglitz, Professor Andrew Hughes Hallett, Professor Sir Jim Mirrlees, and Professor Frances Ruane will also be working with us to inform Scotland’s fiscal future.
The Fiscal Commission Working Group will draw on membership of the Council of Economic Advisers. Professors Andrew Hughes Hallett, Sir Jim Mirrlees, Frances Ruane and Joseph Stiglitz will advise on the establishment of a credible Fiscal Commission which entrenches financial responsibility and ensures market confidence.
