New Life for Old Economies? The end of the Dismal Science tag? 

While browsing around for more books to back up my Explorations in Economics, I found this one edited by Diana Coyle: “New Wealth for Old Nations: Scotland’s Economic Prospects” Princeton UP, Published March 2005.

This looks like an useful resource for anyone trying to develop a realistic policy for dynemic economic development in a 'regional' or 'small nation' Political framework within an increasingly integrated Europe. I’d welcome comments from Scots or Welsh people knowledgeable about this book- is it of practical relevance with the Scottish and Welsh National Elections upcoming?

Diana Coyle is the author of “Sex, Drugs and Economics” and her latest book is “The Soulful Science: What Economists Really Do And Why It Matters” Due out in February 2007 and definitely on my reading list.
