This study considers the issue of income convergence among the MENA (Middle East and North African) countries by using real per capita incomes over the period 1950-2006. We employed (Kapetanios et al. 2003)1211 unit root test by incorporating an additive constant and a trend component as Chong et al. (2008)1201 did in their study and found most of the MENA countries diverging during the sample period. (C) 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
