It also reveals the buoyant revenues required to meet the demands of a steadily growing population to bring about better public services and expensive infrastructural investment and economic policies. The chapter describes several improvements to universal social security benefits, mainstream education services, health services, housing development, and employment policies on the Isle of Man. Finally, it explores revenue spending and taxation of the Isle of Man.
