What is the meaning of the SNP Spring Conference Resolution 1 based on the misnamed “Sustainable Growth” Commission report?

It is easy for the average person or indeed the committed independence supporter to give up when the topics of finance and economics arise in discussion. It is interesting, that in dealing with thousands of people in our work on Reframing, we found only a handful who had actually read the report from cover to cover. This is understandable, for the report itself is exceptionally difficult to digest and poorly presented, without even consistent numbering from start to finish, and with much repetition. As a result, few people have really appreciated what the key points of the report are and many have merely accepted at face value the presentations and summaries from members of the commission itself.

As I discuss later, the original report was seriously flawed in many respects, not just in its poor presentation but also in its contents. Why does this matter? Surely we need to trust that we are being given an accurate representation of the contents?
