This paper examines the geography and the evolution of regional income (or product) inequality in Europe and in North America with the objective of drawing lessons for Latin America. A broad census exists in the literature, certainly among economists, that economic integration and growth will on the long run favour the convergence of per capita income (and product) across nations and regions. The data presented in the paper is consistent with this consensus. Yet, some regional disparities are more stubborn than others. The North/South divide in the UK is an example. A simple model is proposed to explain why regional disparities might be more acute in some nations, event at comparable levels of development. The model seems to apply fairly well to South American nations.
