Economic Integration and Conversion in the EU Member States

Author Info

  • Stoyan Totev

Abstract

The paper supports the understanding that accepting one or another theoretical formulation about the convergence processes feel deeply about the formation of the EU regional policy, respectively for its effectiveness. The relation between the economic development and the convergence within the EU were analysed in the light of the two main theoretical directions (the neoclassical one and the new economic theories). Their correspondence to the empirical results is critically evaluated. The positive and the negative consequences related with the development of the integration processes have been investigated. Finally some conclusions are drawn as regards the applicability of the convergence hypothesis and the formation of the EU regional policy.
