Marketplace Morning Report for Thursday September 11, 2014

It's a week before Scots vote on independence from Britain. Today, the Royal Bank of Scotland said it has plans to move its tax headquarters from Scotland to London if independence were to actually come about. RBS, it should be said, is something of a tarnished jewel. It nearly went out of business during the financial crisis five years ago and had to be nationalized by the British government. More on the politicking here, ahead of the vote. And then we check in with the near-future. The host of our program Marketplace Tech, Ben Johnson, is in San Francisco at Tech Crunch Disrupt, which is — in part — a kind of battle of the bands for startup companies looking for money and attention.
