Asimetrías e intensidad de la integración caribeña

Germán H González, Stefania S Alvarez

Abstract


The intensification of integration processes is political and economically desirable for developingcountries. However, the existence of asymmetries in the income level hinders the realization ofthat goal. These latter issues are extremely important in The Caribbean. The main results are that deeper integration integration is verified de facto accompanying institutional efforts, and that this enhancement was sponsored by the formation of two groups converging internally. Such process is more approximate to the formation of convergence clubs that reducing asymmetry that has been proposed as a goal in the signed agreements.
