The Five Layers of Affluence

Using the Penn World Tables for 1950-1992, we summarize the gross domestic product development of 114 non-Communist countries by means of five regions: the North, the South (“down under”), tropical America plus southwest Asia, southeast Asia, and tropical Africa plus south-central Asia. This five-region classification accounts for >85% of the inequality among the 114 countries during 1961-1986.
