Guests Dr Tim Rideout and former senior banker Ian Stewart from the Scottish Currency Group join us to discuss whether we will have a Scottish economy fit for independence. There is a lot that we like in the latest of the Scottish Government’s papers “A stronger economy with independence”. But, inevitably, Tim and Ian do not agree with everything, particularly the timescales proposed. Find out why in this week’s podcast.

In the discussion we also refer to our earlier interview we did with Dr Kirsty Hughes called Pathways to Europe. You can find that episode in our European perspectives category here
We also broadcast the full version of First Minster’s press conference to launch the Scotgov paper. You can find that episode in our Currency category
