Scottish Independence

Linked here is a BBC Q+A from a few months back on the issue of Scottish Independence. I am currently working with some people here on the design of questions to assess preferences for constitutional options, tax-benefit scenarios and so on. A number of interesting behavioural issues including the roles of loss aversion, risk aversion, framing and priming in influencing preferences as well as the extent to which perceived economic benefits influence preferences and also the extent to which people will adapt to any future changes in Scotland arising from constitutional change. Will post more on this over the next few months.

Scottish independence would (inevitably) provide the excuse for Celtic & Rangers to do what they have wanted to do for years: join the English league. Hence collapse of Scottish league. End of.
