Endogenous trading bloc formation in a North-South global economy
AbstractMajority of the trading blocs to date are between similar countries, rather than between developed and developing countries. This paper provides a rationale for why trading blocs among similar countries may arise as an equilibrium phenomenon. It develops a model of an asymmetric world economy, in which there are at least four countries. The countries are differentiated with respect to their market size and market structure.
