Example N°2: Scotland's deficit.
Every country on the planet runs a deficit.
That's normal. It's expected.
Only exception, Norway.
A small nation owning approximately 50% of North Sea Oil&Gas fields, that wisely established an Oil Fund.
Without touching the accumulated capital, Norway is using the interest accrued yearly to balance their budget and provide exceptional services to its residents.
Even starting today, Scotland could be in the same position by year 5.
For anyone who may not have noticed, it appears the moderators have been getting a hard time from some of us Scots. As far as I can see they are trying to make sure this stays a friendly & welcoming place for everyone. If they disapprove of a comment you've made. Accept it & try not to give them grief & post it on twitter instead. I'm sure we can all do that 🏴
@trumpet use are doing a great job, thanks again for deleting the spam I recieved, I was very impressed by the speed of your response & without me informing use. Well done 👏
