This post, as with the prior ones on trade clusters, aims to help visualize patterns of trade in the OECD from 50 years of partner trade statistics. The data is rich, meaning we should be able to develop rich intuition by exploring it visually.

These slides follow the method laid out in Jong-Eun Lee, “Two Maps for the World’s Trade Integration,” Applied Economics Letters, 11:4 (2004). All computations were performed in R.
