A large number of studies have tested whether per capita incomes are converging, either conditionally or unconditionally, across countries or across regions within countries. However, none of them has investigated the determinants of the speed of convergence when this speed can vary across economies.

The Ramsey-Cass-Koopmans model fares better, but there are still some important inconsistencies.
