On the topological properties of the world trade web: A weighted network analysis

Abstract : This paper studies the topological properties of the World Trade Web (WTW) and its evolution over time by employing a weighted-network analysis. We show that the WTW, viewed as a weighted network, displays statistical features that are very different from those obtained by using a traditional binary-network approach. In particular, we find that: (i) the majority of existing links are associated to weak trade relationships; (ii) the weighted WTW is only weakly disassortative; (iii) countries holding more intense trade relationships are more clustered.
