Symmetry of shocks across countries is often considered as a necessary condi - tion for a monetary union. We show that the measure of shocks symmetry does not reveal a deep parameter, and depends on economic integration. The more integrated economies are, the more asymmetric are GDPs for a given set of sec - toral shocks.
