Endogenous trading bloc formation in a North-South global economy
Majority of the trading blocs to date are between similar countries, rather than between developed and developing countries.

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.
