Abstract: This article offers a survey of the theoretical and empirical literature on economic convergence. It also carries out a first attempt to characterize the evolution of relative per capita GDP levels across European countries before IWW (1870–1913). Cross section analysis confirms the inexistence of β-convergence but the acomplishment of β-convergence hipothesis in a model that allows the consideration of different steady-states across countries. Time series analysis confirms that, during the period 1870–1913, only countries with medium per capita GDP levels converged on those having the highest income levels in 1870.
