B5R50815 - Trade policy, Inequality and Growth - Cours magistral

What are the main determinants of growth and convergence across countries, versus absence of convergence, hence inequality across countries? 

Openness (trade policies), institutions, and geography constitute three sets of competing explanations which form the basis of the discussion. 

The size of the agricultural sector matters, while unconditional convergence exists in the manufacturing sector. In this line, one interesting and recent explanation emphasizes the importance of transportation costs which have been decreasing over the last decades

FDI are a key part of the openness story: what matters more, enhanced capital accumulation, access to the technological frontier or specialization obtained through a larger openness?  

The African versus European cases

Complementarity has different meanings, it can refer to interaction terms (conditionality, non-linearities), or to the fact that a reform is damned to be unsuccessful if implemented alone, in the wrong environment.
