"Trade,Technology and Human Capital: Stylised Facts and Quantitative Evidence"
by Das, Gouranga

Stylised evidence on trade, total factor productivity (TFP) and skill intensity of the labour force is presented. Features emerging as salient are: growing trade in technology-intensive products from the industrialised nations to the relatively laggard nations leads to embodied technology diffusion; the technology-intensive sectors have larger shares of skilled workers; countries experiencing TFP growth usually have higher levels of educational attainment; also, the skilled labour payment share for a sector is positively associated with that sector’s regional trade share. These facts together help explain why endowment of more skilled labour facilitates absorption of technology ferried via trade.
