Cambridge Journal of Economics, 2012, vol. 36, issue 2, 481-493

Abstract: We consider the relative effects of globalisation and regionalism in the context of recent developments in the world economy. We extend and advance the work of Chortareas and Pelagidis using the recently updated Penn World Tables data. This allows consideration of the recent 'golden era' of globalisation, great moderation and the 'Washington consensus'. We produce evidence that corroborates the findings of Chortareas and Pelagidis. We find, however, that in the 1990s and in the new millennium globalisation dynamics outpace regionalism. Nevertheless, regionalism displays resilience and in a potential de-globalisation context it is more likely to dominate over globalism. Copyright The Author 2011.
