The FFS Show episode 13: GERS special

It’s not just the FFS Show podcast that’s landing today.

The annual Government Expenditure and Revenue Scotland report, known as GERS, has also been released, and in this week’s podcast we look at what the report can and can’t tell you.

You regular host Ali Brian is joined this week by The Ferret’s new Digital Engagement Editor Sam Goncalves to talk through some of the debate which surrounds the GERS report each year.
