Abstract

Este trabajo presenta por primera vez un contraste empírico de la validez de la ecuación (Heckscher-Ohlin-Vanek) con datos de comercio interregional de España. Los resultados revelan que el modelo de proporciones factoriales en su versión estricta predice bastante bien la dirección de comercio, pero falla a la hora de explicar el volumen del contenido factorial de ese comercio (problema del comercio desaparecido). El uso de matrices tecnológicas regionales no mejora la capacidad de predicción del modelo HOV. Cuando se relajan los supuestos de igualación del precio de los factores y preferencias idénticas y homotéticas entre regiones, el problema del comercio desaparecido aminora.
