Abstract
In this article, we analyze how factor endowment affects production in the threefactor twogood general equilibrium trade model. These relationships determine whether ‘a strong Rybczynski result’ holds or not. We search for a sufficient condition for this result to hold (or not to hold). We assume factor intensity ranking is constant. We use ‘the economywide substitution’ (or EWS) and EWSratios to analyze Rybczynski sign pattern in a systematic manner. We also analyze StolperSamuelson sign pattern, which expresses the commodity pricefactor price relationships.
