Scottish Independence: Weighing up the Economics by Gavin McCrone
3 of 4 people found the following review helpful
This is a well balanced and fair appraisal of the economic implications of independence (don't be put off by the deranged conspiracy theorist who suspects it was generated by Whitehall). My only criticism is that it's a bit narrower than I would have liked. The topics covered are covered well and in depth but there was little about, for example, public sector jobs which are Westminster-dependent, or the possibility of Scottish based businesses choosing to relocate post-independence. Overall a good read and, at last, an objective and de-politicised appraisal of the facts.
