If you were Scotland and heading for independence with a vote in the British Isles in 2014 or beyond, which currency would you choose for Scotland's long term prosperity, - institutional-wise, especially (e.g. exchange rate mechanism)?

a. British pounds sterling (the keeping of which, against the Euro, has probably benefitted the U.K. in all those little currency exchange costs, for one)?

b. Euros and the benefits of one currency for trading in Europe, and lessen reliance on the English pound?

c. A Scottish currency of its own, and benefit from all those little currency exchange costs, but without the benefits of one currency for trading in Europe

d. other


Select Quotes, Quotations, etc.[edit]

"Like many Scots, I can clearly distinguish between independence and nationalism, and I certainly wouldn't be voting for nationalism, certainly not for tartan-la-la. Really I'd want a yes vote, then a bloodless coup the next morning, before there were any flags or triumphalism." Kathleen Jamie, Unstated: Writers on Scottish Independence
