    Abstract

    On September 18th, 2014, Scots will vote on whether to secede from, or to remain part of the United Kingdom.. Its is a Union the Scotland has shared since 1707. As the referendum date nears, the debate over whether Scotland would be better off as an independent nation, or as part of the Union has intensified. One of the single most important determinants of any country's future economic prosperity is business competitiveness investment and growth. Understanding the implications of the referendum debate outcome for business decision-making and vice versa can therefore be an important guide to the economic consequences of the vote, and its implications for Scotland's fiscal position, and wealth creating potential.
