one cone equilibrium

Definition

Economics

  • A free-trade equilibrium in the Heckscher-Ohlin Model in which prices are such that all goods can be produced within a single country, and there is only one diversification cone. This will arise if countries'factor endowments are sufficiently similar compared to factor intensities of industries. Contrasts with multi-cone equilibrium.
