Abstract:
We revisit the debate on the benefits of financial integration in a two-country neoclassical growth model with aggregate uncertainty. We account simultaneously for gains from a more efficient apital allocation and gains from risk sharing -|together with their interaction. Using global numerical methods allows us to do meaningful welfare comparisons along the transition paths. We find small gains from integration, even for riskier and capital scarce emerging economies. These countries import capital for efficiency reasons before exporting it for self -insurance, leading to capital flows and growth reversals along the transition. This opens the door to a richer set of empirical implications than
previously considered in the literature.
