Abstract

In this article, we analyze how factor endowment affects production in the three-factor two-good 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 economy-wide substitution’ (or EWS) and EWS-ratios to analyze Rybczynski sign pattern in a systematic manner. We also analyze Stolper-Samuelson sign pattern, which expresses the commodity price-factor price relationships.
