This article con rms and quanti es the intuition that the consequences of independence for Catalonian residents will depend crucially on the long term growth rate of the new republic. It also shows that the demographic, educational, and productivity advantages of Catalonian residents, when compared with those of the rest of Spain, are not enough to ensure a more prosperous economic future for Catalonians or a more sustainable pension system.
