A General Model of Comparative Advantage with Two Factors and a Continuum of Goods
AbstractThis paper develops a general model of comparative advantage with two factors and a continuum of goods, which incorporates the Ricardian and Heckscher-Ohlin-Samuelson models as two special cases and which can illustrate how technology, factor endowments, world income, world prices, and demand preferences influence trade pattern with a single graph. Further, the author has derived an intuitive solution of a unique trade pattern under factor price equalization: countries specialize in goods that use intensively abundant factors and some middle goods in terms of capital intensity are not traded even in the absence of trade barriers.
