The Leontief paradox is based on empirical results that did not support the Heckscher-Ohlin theory. In the research behind the paradox, the United States imported more capital- intensive goods than it exported, even though the United States is viewed as being more capital abundant and less labor abundant. How does Leontief attempt to explain this paradox? Evaluate this explanation. Can you identify other causes that would explain the finding? Consider evaluating some of the underlying assumptions to the H-O theory. For help contextualizing the Leontief-Paradox, consider your own experiences in a group where you were not able to showcase your best skill because you did something that was not your best because of the skill level of other group members.
