Robin McAlpine: Different equals cleverer – a lesson for Scotland

CommonSpace columnist and Common Weal director Robin McAlpine says Scotland will reap the rewards if it dares to be different

"It seems obvious that a group of people with diverse individual expertise would be better than a homogeneous group at solving complex, non-routine problems. It is less obvious that social diversity should work in the same way – yet the science shows that it does."

John Fullerton: 'Determination' shows the need for a real indy plan, but is anyone listening?

John Fullerton reviews the new book from Common Weal director Robin McAlpine, 'Determination', on how Scotland can achieve independence

I'LL admit it right away: I'm an avid supporter of Scottish independence so this little book is of pressing interest to me, and no doubt to both Yes and No partisans on an issue that is very much back on the front pages.
