Imperfect competition in international trade pp Cite as. Most of the traditional theories of trade have been developed on the assumptions of perfect competition and constant returns to scale. Typical examples are the Ricardian and Heckscher—Ohlin models of trade. In the Ricardian model, trade is due to technological differences between countries. In the Heckscher—Ohlin model, technologies are assumed identical between countries, and trade is due to differences in relative factor endowments.
Both models succeed in explaining the determinants of interindustry trade. However, they are not capable of explaining the phenomenon of intra-industry trade, which is a major component of world trade. This is chiefly due to the two traditional key assumptions of perfect competition and constant returns to scale.

Helpman, Elhanan. Add to List. Specialization that results from comparative advantage in the production of homogeneous and differentiated -products is used to derive hypotheses about the volume of trade and its composition. These hypotheses are examined empirically for a sample of fourteen industrial countries during the post-war period.. The examination relies on cross-country comparisons as well as on comparisons of the group of countries at different points of time. The data seems to be consistent with the hypotheses.

Monopolistic competition models are used under the rubric of imperfect competition in International Economics. This model is a derivative of the monopolistic competition model that is part of basic economics. Here it is tailored to international trade.
