This chapter presents concluding remarks concerning the constitutional status, democracy and policy making, and state intervention in Manx society. It shows that the Isle of Man has economic and social problems, but it contains sufficient political machinery with which to tackle such problems. It also mentions that a high level of consensus about major policy, a strong tradition of coalition politics and a long-standing distrust of party politics can be critical in maintaining the power of the Independents in Manx politics. Intervention by the state in response to social and economic problems has increased. The arrival of ministerial government co-occurred with a new period of economic growth and economic prosperity.
