This week, Craig talks to Dexter Whitfield, one of the UK’s foremost experts in scrutiny of Public Private Partnerships, about the impact they’ve had on Scotland and about his new research for Common Weal showing how much of Scotland’s public money is being extracted by the companies running the schemes and how much of that is being funnelled through tax havens.

You can read his policy paper here.
And our blueprint for an alternative using a partnership between the Scottish National Investment Bank and a Scottish National Infrastructure Company can be read here.

You can read more of Dexter’s work at the European Services Strategy Unit here.
