As China becomes more closely entwined with the US, positive shocks inthe US translate into positive outcomes for China, but the extent of gain forthe US during the convergence process is less clear. We develop an empiricalframework of two interacting open economies in which Chinese GDP percapita moves towards convergence and cointegration with the US, resultingin a time-varying structural VAR model. As a result, the impulse responsesof the two countries to shocks are sensitive to the timing of the shock. Thechanging e¤ects of US shocks are evident in the analysis, which shows thatover the convergence process both the US and China unambiguously bene…tfrom the catch-up process.
