Abstract: Have nations embraced globalisation and integrated themselves into the international financial and trading system? We seek to untangle the puzzle of emerging economy dynamics and globalisation, thus, we test the integration/globalisation thesis. We engage the globalisation literature by testing common assumptions regarding the breadth and depth of globalisation in emerging economies with a rigorous large-N empirical model. Further, we engage the developmental literature by investigating important aspects of trade flows and economic openness. This study contributes to the extant literature on globalisation and economic development by uncovering important links between globalisation, economic development and trade.
Keywords: emerging markets; globalisation; economic growth; emerging economies; trade flows; economic openness; economic development.
