specific factors model

Definition

Economics

  • A model in which some or all factors are specific factors. The most common version is the Ricardo-Viner Model, with one specific factor (often capital or land) in each industry plus another factor (often labor) that is mobile between them. But an extreme form of the model, the Cairnes-Haberler Model, has all factors specific.
