A Nordic convergence club?
AbstractTests of the Convergence Hypothesis, or the tendency for per capita income levels to narrow over time, have generally utilized cross-sectional data from a wide range of disparate coun7 tries and resulted in conflicting evidence. Using modern time series tests we find evidence of a Nordic Convergence Club comprising Sweden, Denmark and Finland. It excludes Norway which overtakes Sweden in the 1970s showing no tendency to reversion.
