This paper tests the convergence of 53 countries vis-à-vis the United States using two different methods: unit root tests (ADF and KPSS) and a kalman filter test. The ADF test accepts convergence extremely rarely whereas the KPSS procedure accepts this hypothesis rather loosely. The Kalman filter procedure seems to be more germane to the usual definition of convergence. A clear evidence of convergence appears only for Japan after the second World War. Other cases seem fragile and rely only on a…

A method of deriving asymptotics for linear processes is introduced which uses an explicit algebraic decomposition of the linear filter. The method leads to substantial simplifications in the
