Edinburgh Economy

Business services and banking, tourism and festivals, and higher education are major components of Edinburgh's economy.  The Scottish capital's biggest employer is Edinburgh City Council, and as the centre of Scotland's government and legal system, the public sector is a major driver of the local economy.
