Independence is the only guarantee of more powers for Scotland despite pro-union parties outlining plans for further devolution under a No vote, First Minister Alex Salmond said.
There now appears to be consensus among all the main parties that Scotland needs substantially more powers.
But a Yes vote is the only option on the ballot paper which offers those powers.
Scotland is a hugely wealthy country. Official figures show that, as an independent nation, we would be the 14th most prosperous per head in the developed world, ahead of France, Japan and the UK itself.
