Abstract

A rising skill premium in two countries can be explained by the Heckscher-Ohlin model assuming a "skill intensity reversal." This assumption, however, poses an empirical challenge since past research has found little evidence for the so-called "factor intensity reversal." We now show clear-cut evidence for the existence of the skill intensity reversal.
