The BBC's James Naughtie spoke to four economists about the speech on Scotland's future by Bank of England governor, Mark Carney.

Jo Armstrong, Prof Gavin McCrone, Dr Angus Armstrong and Prof John Kay analysed what he said on currency, fiscal powers and national sovereignty.

The address by Mr Carney to the Scottish Council for Development and Industry comes ahead of the Scottish independence referendum on 18 September.

Voters will be asked the straight "yes/no" question: "Should Scotland be an independent country?"
