Abstract

We formulate a two(-country) by two(-tradable good) by two(-factor) dynamic general equilibrium model of endogenous growth and international rade that has no market distortion. After deriving the conditions for a balanced growth path with incomplete specialization in both countries to exist and to be locally saddlepoint stable, we show that along the balanced growth paths (i) a dynamic version of the Heckscher-Ohlin Theorem is established, (ii) the relationship between the volume of international trade and the long-run growth rate depends on the factor-intensity ranking between the two sector, and (iii) so does whether the Law of Comparative Advantage holds or not. The Stolper-Samuelson Theorem and the Factor Price Equalization Theorem are shown to hold in a dynamic framework.
