Abstract

The labor and capital intensities of U.S. agricultural trade during 1973, 1974, and 1976 are examined through an input-output model. The empirical results indicate that U.S. agricultural exports tend to be more capital intensive while agricultural imports are more labor intensive, a result counter to Leontief's paradox.
