Description :
This paper challenges the proposition that Germany suffers from an economic East–West gap. It shows that poor peripheries grow faster than richer ones throughout Germany, while income gaps among cores seem to be increasing. Since poorer cores are relatively prevalent in the former German Democratic Republic (GDR), this resembles an East–West issue. In fact, the distribution of growth in Germany occurs along core–periphery lines rather than an East–West division.
