Recent Trends in Western European Income Convergence

Journal of Economic Integration, 2002, vol. 17, 80-84
In the postwar era, economic interaction and integration among Western European countries has grown rapidly. We examine whether those close and growing linkages have led to inter-country income convergence in Western Europe during 1960-2000. We find clear empirical evidence of convergence. This provides strong support for the notion that Western Europe constitutes a convergence club.
