Abstract:

The central conclusion from the empirical work is that geographic distance is only one among several persistent and significant influences on international transactions. Some of the other influences--specifically, economic size, culture, economic and technological structure--have relatively greater individual or collective effects than does distance, and all of these other influences trade off against distance at measurable rates that frequently favor the non-distance influences on transactions.
