Endogenous Inequality and Fluctuations in a two-Country Model
We study a two-country version of Matsuyama's [K. Matsuyama, Financial market globalization, symmetry-breaking, and endogenous inequality of nations, Econometrica 72 (2004) 853-884] world economy model.

In addition, we show that when the countries differ in population size, their interaction through credit markets may lead to persistent endogenous...[Show more]
