Abstract: Alwyn Young (2000) argues that barriers to inter-provincial trade in China have increased during the reform period. This paper critically examines each of his five arguments and the evidence he presents. In all five instances the argument is problematic and the evidence not robust. A comparison with the U.S. shows the Chinese evidence to be well within the range of that of a normal, relatively integrated large economy.
