Evolving Patterns of International Trade

Abstract

Theoretical models of growth and trade suggest that patterns of international specialisation are inherently dynamic and evolve endogenously over time. Initial comparative advantaged are either reinforced or gradually unwound with the passage of time. This paper puts forward an empirical framework to evaluate the dynamics of international trade patterns, that uses techniques widely employed in the cross-country literature on income convergence.
