Chapter 10 of “The Claim Of Scotland”.
Quote Of The Chapter:
“The relative stagnation of industry which has been described earlier means more than a mere failure to increase material wealth. The resulting unemployment has caused many of the youngest and most vigorous men and women to seek their fortunes elsewhere.
In economic decline Scotland could still survive; but a disproportionate drain on her resources of mind and character, great as they are, must mean in the end that Scotland will cease to be herself.”
On the upside, of course, if everyone leaves it does lower the unemployment figures.
