1.1. the aim OF THE learn This research offers with local co-operation between constructing through neighborhood co-operation is international locations and its strength merits. intended any kind of concerted motion via the nations of a area aimed toward a fuller usage in their development power. Such con certed motion could include different types of monetary coverage measures relating to construction, funding and international alternate. during this feel, neighborhood co-operation is to be considered as a side of the partaking nations' total improvement procedure. in contrast to different reports during this box, facing integration between constructing nations and focussing realization at the making plans of such integra tion (see, e.g., Mennes 1972), the current research concentrates at the impact of integration and co-ordination rules at the constitution of intra-and extra-regional alternate. quite often huge ameliorations exist between constructing nations with admire to numerous features of financial improvement, e.g., the constitution of call for, the constitution of capital formation and the expansion charges of person sectors. Such divergencies demand the usage of a multi-country, multi-sector version that may allow a greater co-ordination of construction and funding regulations. Atten tion may still thereby receive to the development of intra-regional specialization that may consequence from this kind of co-ordinated policy.

Tinbergen (1970) has suggested the introduction of indirect taxes to the savings equation, assuming governments can adequately accompany the adjustment process by raising or decreasing the amount of government savings. Other instruments that would affect the level of private savings are direct taxes and interest rates. The examples of modifications of assumptions of the two-gap theory given above are more often concerned with domestic development conditions than with the foreign trade conditions of developing countries.
2. 1. The adjustment mechanism: an analytical and a policy problem: In the adjustment process we may make a distinction between autonomous and induced changes. Autonomous changes occur as a result of measures of economic policy. Induced changes, in the framework of the two-gap analysis, occur as a result of forces invoked by the difference between the ex-ante savings and trade gaps. Both categories of changes will bring about an ex-post equality of the two gaps. Induced changes are the subject of the two-gap analysis.
2. Modifications of the assumptions: We will leave aside one criticism of the two-gap theory which involves the problem of empirical verification (Fei and Ranis, 1968), and concentrate on modifications to the assumptions ofthe theory. One assumption questioned by Maizels (1968) is the supposed independence of the trade and savings gap. He argues that there are two ways by which the two gaps may be interrelated. One is by a relation between savings and exports, another by a relation between exports and the capital-output ratio.
