Income dynamics for an enlarged Europe : the role of capital regions

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The article is aimed to study, by means of an approach to convergence, whether after the recent enlargements of the EU the traditional twofold spatial regime of regional per capita income growth, envisaging a north/south and/or a cohesion/non-cohesion countries divide, should be replaced by an alternative east/west spatial pattern. A second issue is whether new member regions where capital cities are located are benefiting from the same "network effect" that stimulated growth in old member capital regions during the 1980s and early 1990s. The AA. find significant spatial effects in the enlarged Europe which seems to be formed by a group of old member regions, slowly becoming more homogeneous, and a newcomers group which represents a separate "convergence club" but whose capital regions are rapidly integrating into the west
