As we enter the third decade of devolution, Wales’ fiscal landscape is subject to considerable political and economic uncertainty, from the UK’s recent departure from the European Union and second round of negotiations over future trading relations, to increased interest in questions relating to Wales’ constitutional future. This report is an attempt to provide a sober assessment of Wales’ current fiscal position as part of the UK, considers what would need to change for the fiscal deficit to reduce, and finally explores some of the fiscal and economic implications of Welsh independence. While not a comprehensive assessment, it is hoped this report will stimulate an informed and wide-ranging debate.
