Leontief Paradox

Definition

The finding of Leontief (1954) that U.S. imports embodied a higher ratio of capital to labor than U.S. exports. This was surprising because it was thought that the U.S. was capital abundant, and theHeckscher-Ohlin Theorem would then predict that U.S. exports would be relatively capital intensive.
