This chapter focuses on change, rather than static differences/similarities among countries. The study shows that large differences between US-UK and Europe persist, together with some convergence trends in the late 1990s (on both sides) as far as ownership concentration is concerned. The chapter observes that convergence on this aspect co-exists with divergence (or persisting differences) on other aspects; that convergence among the two areas has been toward each other and not from one to the other (in particular not only of Europe towards the US), and that these dynamics are in any case likely to have been specific to the stock market bubble period and should not be extrapolated.

Keywords:   convergence, divergence, variety of capitalisms, globalization, ownership concentration, stock markets
