El presente estudio se centra en uno de los problemas económicos regionales fundamentales de nuestra época: el desenvolvimiento económico de la convergencia y el crecimiento en las regiones considerando a las instituciones. El estudio se ocupa de revisar la literatura teórica del crecimiento económico, y en particular por algunos de los desarrollos teóricos y empíricos que han tenido lugar recientemente en el campo de la convergencia económica. De igual forma, el estudio analiza la convergencia regional en México y aborda los fundamentos teóricos y empíricos en el cual las instituciones juegan un papel importante en el proceso de integración regional en México y en especial en la frontera norte. Finalmente, se realiza un análisis empírico de la convergencia regional de largo plazo para los estados de México, introduciendo una variable de corrupción dentro de las instituciones, una variable de frontera, controlando con una variable de capital humano regional. Los resultados estiman una tasa anual de convergencia de entre -0.018% a 4.1% para el periodo de 1970 a 2001, cuando se toman en cuenta los efectos de las variables institucionales, de capital humano y de frontera.

The empirical analysis estimates an annual rate of convergence that varies from -0.018% to 4.1% for the period between 1970 and 2001, when controlling for human capital, institutional and border effects.
