But that model still assumed that technological progress was exogenous, and a positive rate of technological progress or growth in the labor force was needed to obtain steady-state growth. The same assumptions were used in two-sector, open economy versions of this model, such as Smith (1977). Ultimately, interest in the profession has turned to models that instead allow for an endogenous rate of technological innovation, and we shall outline one of these models, taken from Grossman and Helpman (1990; 1991, chapters 3, 8 and 9).

We have therefore established: Rybczynski (1955) Theorem: An increase in a factor endowment will increase output of the industry using it intensively, and decrease the output of the other industry. 11. With the initial endowments (L, K ) , the equilibrium outputs are y1 and y2. Now suppose that the labor endowment increases to L’ > L, with no change in the capital endowment. Starting from the endowments (L’,K), the only way to add up multiples of (a1L, a1K) and (a2L, a2K) and obtain the endowments is to 12 As an exercise, show that L1 / K1 > L / K > L 2 / K 2 ⇔ λ1L > λ1K and λ 2 K > λ 2 L .

This is done by multipying the numerator and denominator in the first set of inequalities by like terms. 12 1-32 Feenstra, Advanced International Trade reduce the output of industry 2 to y2’, and increase the output of industry 1 to y1’. This means that not only does industry 1 absorb the entire amount of the extra labor endowment, it also absorbs further labor and capital from industry 2 so that its ultimate labor/capital ratio is unchanged from before. The labor/capital ratio in industry 2 is also unchanged, and this is what permits both industries to pay exactly the same factor prices as they did before the change in endowments.
