This week, Craig talks once again to Tim Rideout. Currency expert and "controversial economist" who has campaigned for Scotland to set up its own independent currency so that its ready to launch "as soon as practicable" after independence. Last weekend he successfully won a vote at the SNP conference to instruct the party to draw up legislation to begin work on launching a Scottish Central Bank so that preparations can be started immediately after a successful independence referendum.

During the show, Craig references his interview with borders and customs expert, Bill Austin in Episode #37 of the Policy Podcast. You can listen to that show here.
