Factor Proportions and East Asian Industrialization: A Note
This note assesses the robustness of factor proportions classifications in international comparisons. The issue is examined with reference to five East Asian economies experiencing rapid industrialization and upgrading, and for a range of labour-intensive and near labour-intensive industries. We conclude that most of the rankings are consistent with a priori expectations. Moreover, there has been no major and systemic alteration in these rankings in the period under study.
