The net contribution of whisky to the British economy

Here is an enticing demonstrationenticing demonstration of why it always serve to look at 'net' figures when trying to work out the impact of industries on the economy as a whole.

The Scotch Whisky Association (SWA) has produced a report that suggests that other more vaunted sectors aren't net contributors to trade, but that it is, and that it is responsible for significant job creation in Scotland.

Thus, it implies, why should the government be seen to support Nissan and other car manufacturers, rather than it? And on that basis, isn't there a case for freezing duty on whisky - particularly if Brexit is going to make it more expensive too?
