The Impact of Talent Distribution on Trade
In an equilibrium trade model, we prove that not only the diversity effect but also the kurtosis effect will affect the pattern of comparative advantage. Furthermore, we find that, against the conventional results, if the kurtosis effect dominates the diversity effect then a country with more (less) diversified talent may export the goods produced by supermodular (submodular) technology.
