Pressure for independence remains a major force in Scotland, but the case for it has changed substantially since the referendum of 2014. In the 2016 Brexit referendum, 60 per cent of the Scottish electorate voted to remain part of the European Union– the only part of the UK to reject Brexit so unequivocally.



This new analysis takes into account a host of economic issues including deficit, debt, currency, energy (including North Sea oil and gas), pensions, mortgages and the financial sector. It weighs up the advantages of rejoining the EU single market, either as a full EU member or as a member of the EEA, with the disadvantages of a hard border with the rest of the UK.



Independence would create opportunities, but it would also bring many thorny problems which the Scottish government, and the Scottish people, would have to face.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Dedicated to the art of impartiality… this study of the economics of Scottish independence offers plenty of insights' - Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman

'This well balanced look at Scotland’s view of independence following Brexit is an essential guide for anyone interested in politics and economics' - Scots Magazine

'While the effect of Brexit could lead to more support for independence… McCrone highlights several challenges he says independence would bring' - The Times

'I strongly recommend that it should be read by everyone interested in the facts of a debate that tends to go on and on' - Energy Voice

'In the debate over the economics of Scottish independence, no name resonates more loudly than that of Gavin McCron ... this study of the economics of independence offers plenty of insights, but no easy answers' - Scotsman Politics and Current Affairs Summer Edit
