Trade and Convergence Among Countries

This paper examines the relationship between international trade and income convergence among countries by focusing on groups of countries comprising major trade partners. The majority of these trade-based groups ex hibited significant convergence. Furthermore, a comparison of the tradebased groups with different country groupings (randomly selected, or according to other criteria) shows that the former were more likely to exhibit convergence than the latter.
