On the Optimality of Economic Integration
We uncover conditions on the initial income and net foreign assets of potential union members such that forming a union is welfare-improving over standing alone in the world economy. Our model predicts that economic unions (i) occur relatively infrequently, and are more likely to emerge (ii) among homogeneous countries, and (iii) among rich countries.
