Common Weal Campaigns Officer Jonathon Shafi and Head of Policy & Research Craig Dalzell talk about Common Weal's book How to Start a New Country which offers a blueprint for how to prepare for Scottish independence in a democratic "future neutral" way.

They discuss various chapters in the book such as how to set up a Central Bank, what opportunities lie in store for Scotland's energy potential, why Scotland should build a social security system that is ready for independence and how debt and assets could be split between Scotland and the remaining United Kingdom.

You can buy the book at our shop here.

The Policy Podcast would like to discuss all of Common Weal's policy papers in detail over the next several months so if there are any papers that you would like to see covered sooner rather than later, send your suggestions in to craig@common.scot
