The Scottish Independence Podcast - David Comerford

17 January 2014 | 00:00–23:59

David Comerford is the guest for the 45th episode of the Scottish Independence Podcast.

David is an economist at The University of Stirling, who is working on the ESRC's Future of the UK & Scotland project.

Listening to this is your chance to get over some of the spin from both sides in this debate. Some of the questions I put to him were...

What are the benefits of staying or leaving the EU?

What's the truth surrounding currency choices?

Is the white paper realistic?

Aside from that, David had some important things to say on the subject of short-termism and how narrow some of the thinking so far has been.
