Behavioural Economics and Scottish Constitutional Change

Scotland will vote in 2014 whether to go the route of becoming an independent country (some details here). The form the referendum will take (including the number of options) is not as yet clear. I will use this post to keep track of resources relevant to behavioural economics and constitutional change. It will change as the year progresses.
