(Disponible en idioma inglés únicamente) En este trabajo se analizan los vínculos empíricos entre la dotación de factores, el comercio y la distribución del ingreso personal. La motivación es que muchos países en desarrollo han llevado adelante reformas radicales del comercio internacional en los últimos años. Estas reformas han hecho variar los precios relativos, han inducido la reasignación de recursos y pueden haber conducido a la introducción de nuevas técnicas de producción. Esos cambios son muy complejos y su efecto final sobre la distribución del ingreso no está del todo clara desde el punto de vista teórico. El objetivo del autor es presentar un extracto de hechos empíricos sobre las relaciones entre la distribución del ingreso, la dotación de factores y el comercio.
