Scotland has voted against independence. (1)
Welcome to the new age of Money.
Where countries decide on their independence based on their economic prospects.
Where countries decide on their non-independence based on their economic prospects.
Where people do not have the sense of “nation” but have a strong sense of business.
There was a time when nations wanted to be independent EVEN THOUGH they knew their situation would be FAR worse in the beginning! (I suppose Greeks should not rise against the Turks in 1821 because in the beginning we really had huge economic problems, right?)
Now that time has passed.
Now you have to ask Moody’s and RBS first…
Well done Scots! You have shown your priorities. There you are in “union” with ANOTHER nation just because you want to keep your currency, your stability, your peace of mind.
I suppose William Wallace had his economic advisers give the “ok” before he started his campaign…
