Gordon MacIntyre-Kemp – a short, recent history

Gordon has given evidence to several Scottish and Westminster Parliamentary Committees, The House of Lords and submitted policy advisory papers to the OECD. Gordon has also served as a Director of Glasgow Chamber of Commerce.
A leading advocate for a switch from global capitalism to a Wellbeing socioeconomic approach, Gordon’s work through his economic and policy research team at Scotianomics Ltd is defining the emerging Wellbeing Economics approach. Gordon has appeared regularly on radio and TV as a business, political and economics commentator and has written hundreds of articles for newspapers and online publications.
