A Many-Country, Many-Good Model of Labor Market Rigidities as a Source of Comparative Advantage

Journal of the European Economic Association, 2010, vol. 8, issue 2-3, 434-441
We extend the theoretical framework in Cuñat and Melitz (2007) to a many-country setup where countries exhibit different degrees of labor market flexibility. We rely on the insights from a recent paper by Costinot (2009) to obtain precise predictions about comparative advantage in this setting: countries with more flexible labor markets specialize in more volatile industries.
