Scotland, Currency and Finance

Posted on

Might I give a plug here for a blog I have written for the New Left Project on the above, related themes? It's available here.

The conclusion is:

Scotland’s choices have to be brave, insightful, and based on economic thinking that rejects so much of the fundamentally flawed thinking that has underpinned neoliberalism. This is precisely why so many Scots are tempted to vote yes. Scottish leaders of all parties have to rise to the challenge that the vision of the people they want to represent poses by delivering the sort of new economic thinking that a chap from Kirkcaldy* offered the world in 1776, but adapted for the twenty first century. The question is, will they?

I'm not optimistic, I admit.
