Putting Ricardian trade theory to work in 2017: Current empirical analyses

Jonathan Eaton

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter discusses extensions of the simple 2 × 2 Ricardo model. In particular, it considers extensions to several goods and countries, the possibility of international technology diffusion, and the possibility of imperfect labor mobility between sectors. The chapter shows how these extensions make the Ricardian framework a useful tool for understanding data, and, thus, help to put Ricardian Trade Theory (back) to work.
