Abstract

Scottish first minister Alex Salmond argues that, should his country gain independence, it would be able to keep the pound and would automatically become a member of the EU. However, Jo Murkens points out that membership status would not be a given and would need to be applied for, with the attendant implication that Scotland would be obliged to adopt the euro.
