Everyone in Scotland benefits from the existence of high quality public service. We all use them so often we don’t even notice half the time. Maintaining investment in public services is essential for service users and to create and sustain economic recovery.  Far from crowding out the private sector, the public sector supports business. The market has consistently failed to deliver the infrastructure required for a successful economy.   To build a fairer and more sustainable society we need fair taxation and a crackdown on tax avoidance. We all need to pay our fair share. Taxing the super rich makes society fairer by both providing resources to pay for services and by reducing the wealth inequalities that cause so much harm.
