Sturgeon’s EU plans BLOW: Top economic expert brands her Scot pound bid a MISTAKE

30 Aug

Professor Stiglitz said the pound was selected ahead of the 2014 poll because Scottish ministers had wanted “the smoothest transition possible”.


He told BBC’s Good Morning Scotland: “They wanted to say that we could move from the current economic arrangement to another one while keeping our currency and keeping other forms of institutions.

“I think, in hindsight, that may have been a mistake.

“It would be a mistake to join the euro, by the way, so what they would have needed to do, perhaps, was resurrect the Scottish pound and let it float.”
