摘要

We show that spatial inequalities in an economy space of multiple countries are observable when countries are dierentiated by population only, based on a new trade theory model without any freely traded homogeneous good so that wage rates are endogenously determined.  By examining the home market eect (HME), we derive a U-shaped relationship of income inequalities with globalisation. Meanwhile, there are three HME definitions, in terms of firm share, labour wage, and trade pattern, respectively. The first two are extended to a multicountry space and they are equivalent. However, a natural extention of the third one is not equivalent.
