''A note on Chamberlinian-Ricardian trade patterns''
( 2004, Vol. 6 No.7 )
Using a two-country model of monopolistic competition with cross-country technical heterogeneity, this note explores the determinants of comparative advantage. It is shown that trade patterns are determined by a technology index, and that autarky relative prices do not serve as reliable predictors of trade patterns.
Keywords: Monopolistic competition technical heterogeneity trade patterns
JEL: F1 - Trade: General
D4 - Market Structure and Pricing: General
