L'Économie d'une Écosse indépendante, de la rente pétrolière au Brexit

Abstract : The SNP wants Scotland to become independent chiefly on economic grounds. Scottish politicians ought to be able to run Scotland's natural and human resources to boost growth and meet social aims. Yet in 2014 when the referendum on Scotland's independence was held, there were lingering uncertainties – especially over the currency – which deterred many voters. As another referendum might be on the agenda in response to Brexit the SNP set up the Sustainable Growth Commission to devise credible responses proving Scotland's viability and its ability to conduct autonomous policies. This article examines the process and the reactions it triggered up to the 2019 SNP conference which endorsed most of its recommendations.
