Murray Pittock: Yes vote vital to realise potential
Murray Pittock, first professor of Scottish literature at an English university, puts the case for independence.
But, in fact, Scotland isn’t selfish or parochial, it’s just small. Small countries are adept at networking, and it’s a networking age. They are adept at finding new solutions in education (Finland, for example) or fish farming (Norway) and many other things. The top five countries in the world for global competitiveness in 2012 are all small, as are four of the top five for innovation and four of the top five for prosperity.
I'm curious how large the five countries with the worst competitiveness are. Is the correlation to size in part a function of variance?Post a Comment
