could someone really help me out I would need to show a situation in which the Heckscher-Ohlin result does not necessarily hold when preferences are heterogeneous. Does someone have an idea how I could do that?

Would really appreciate the support Cheers, James

  • $\begingroup$ What have you tried so far? E.g. did you try taking any random heterogeneous preferences + production coefficients and calculating the competitive equilibrium? $\endgroup$ – Giskard Oct 28 '19 at 23:01
  • $\begingroup$ Not really, wouldn't know how to do that $\endgroup$ – James Oct 29 '19 at 6:15
  • $\begingroup$ How would I go about if i wanted to add production coefficients to calculate the competitive equilibirum? Thank you for being so active $\endgroup$ – James Oct 29 '19 at 9:40
  • $\begingroup$ That is a whole different question all together. In what situation would you need produce an example where the Hecksher-Ohlin result does not hold where you don't already know how to calculate the competitive equilibrium? $\endgroup$ – Brennan Nov 3 '19 at 3:03
