The upswing to the left of the figure has a nice smooth form as expected, but the new level is not reached by a similar process. The curves for countries like Denmark and Sweden from 1948 to 1973 look as if the upper convergence was to a new level well above 100 per cent.

The external balance is probably the best such mechanism. Most of the OECD countries have learned discipline the hard way, already in the 1950s.
